HC Deb 30 January 1957 vol 563 c195W
Mr. Wigg

asked the Secretary of State for Air when he proposes to present a Supplementary Estimate for the £56,000 cost of supplies and services provided for the French Air Force serving in Cyprus or proceeding to Israel or engaging in Middle East operations, in view of the fact that the application of this sum has not yet been authorised by Parliament; and how he proposes to set off the refund from the French Government.

Mr. Ward

The Air Estimates for 1956–57 include provision for supplies and services to be made available to other Governments on repayment and for money received from those Governments to be credited as Appropriations in Aid. A Supplementary Estimate will only be necessary if the sums provided in the original Estimates should prove insufficient to meet expenditure incurred in the year.
