MR. GIBSON BOWLES
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty will consider the possibility and the advisability of 492 engraving on the appropriate Admiralty charts a typical series of accurately drawn great circle routes from which any other great circle routes between any two points might be plotted out in accordance with the system suggested by Mr. H. M. Taylor, of Trinity College, Cambridge?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
This question has already been considered and decided in the negative. The advantages conferred would not compensate for the inconvenience of a mass of lines crossing the chart, and the required information for routes where it is of most service is already given on the Admiralty track charts.
