HC Deb 04 November 1918 vol 110 cc1772-3

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the possibility of hostilities ending soon, he can make any statement as to the probable use of aeroplanes for postal services for both home and foreign mails; if he is aware that the American and French postal authorities are making experimental services; if he has had any reports on the same or has made any experiments in this country; and, if not, whether he proposes to do so and can make any general statement on the matter?


I am aware of the services in the United States and France to which the hon. Member refers. There have been no recent experiments in this country, and, while the question of the use of aeroplanes for both home and foreign mails is being kept in view, I cannot at present make any general statement on the matter.
