HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c210W
88. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what has been the cost of the airlift to Zambia up to the present date; and how the cost is to be apportioned between the countries taking part in it.

Mr. Bottomley

The cost of the British civil and R.A.F. airlifts to Zambia up to 9th February, the latest date for which figures are available, was approximately £1.28 million. The cost of Canadian and American airlifts is, of course, a matter entirely for those Governments, and I have no information on this subject.
