Mr. O'Neill Mr. O'Neill
Mr. O'Neill asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he has taken into account the development of civil aviation in the Irish Free State evidenced by the formation of aviation clubs in several parts of the country, and if he is prepared to help such clubs by giving financial assistance in the form of an annual direct subsidy to the clubs or by the creation of a prize fund to encourage competitive flights or aero displays organised by such clubs.
Mr. Lemass Mr. Lemass
Mr. Lemass: I am aware of the formation of two Aviation Clubs in the  Saorstát but no case for financial assistance of the character indicated in the question has so far been established by either.
