HC Deb 21 July 1954 vol 530 c125W
83. Mr. Swingler

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how much it was planned to spend on the Royal Air Force in the three-year programme beginning in 1951; how much was actually spent in the period; and the value of this amount, in terms of 1950 prices.

Mr. Ward

The figures are: £1,490 million; about £1,240 million (the exact expenditure for 1953–54 is not yet known); and about £1,115 million.
