Ministry of Aviation

Ministry of Aviation was a department of the United Kingdom government, established in 1959. Its responsibilities included the regulation of civil aviation and the supply of military aircraft, which it took on from the Ministry of Supply.

In 1967, the Ministry of Aviation merged into the Ministry of Technology[1] which took on the supply of military aircraft, while regulatory responsibilities were switched to the Board of Trade.
