81. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has taken exception to the route proposed for the "Daily Mail" newspaper's waterplane race around Great Britain; and, if so, for what reason?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Colonel Seely)

Certain details of the route originally proposed coult1 not be accepted for reasons of national security. But I understand that those concerned are in consultation with a view to arriving at such modified proposals as may be found acceptable.
