HC Deb 29 March 1976 vol 908 c367W
Mr. Warren

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will list the amount, in current and at 1949 base values, of financial aid given in each financial year since the introduction of the Civil Aviation Act 1949 under Section 1(1) of that Act.

Mr. Clinton Davis

The functions conferred by Section 1 (1) of the Civil Aviation Act 1949 on a Minister of Civil Aviation have since been transferred to other Ministers or authorities. The task of identifying and collating the expenditure incurred by the Departments and authorities concerned over the past 26 years could be undertaken only at disproportionate cost.
