§ 34. Mr. Mathew
asked the Minister of Aviation what contribution civil aviation makes to the invisible exports to the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Rippon
The net contribution of the two Airways Corporations to invisible exports in 1960 amounted to about £30 million.
No comparable statistic is at present available for the independent airlines, but the President of British Independent Air Transport Association has kindly undertaken to provide this figure which I will pass on to my hon. Friend.
