HC Deb 01 March 1967 vol 742 cc91-2W
66. Mr. Russell Kerr

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how the amount of £7 million shown as the estimated cost for 1967–68 of chartering civil aircraft for the purpose of moving personnel, families and priority service freight will be spread amongst the air carriers involved, assuming the same pattern as in 1966–67.

Mr. Reynolds

The total provision in the Defence Estimates 1967–68 for the movement by air of personnel and families is almost £8.6 million and for air freight £0.8 million. About £3 million will be spent with the Corporations and most of the rest with independent operators under contract.
