§ 84. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether it has now been definitely decided to use the Thames as an air station; for what air services it is proposed to use the station; whether it is proposed to use the same the whole year round or only during the summer months can he state approximately when it will be opened; what arrangements have been made for landing passengers; and if it is proposed to set up a Customs Office in order to deal with luggage and merchandise brought to this station?
The answer to the first part of the question is, that it is the intention of the Air Ministry to carry out further experimental flights for a few weeks, to and from the Thames above Westminster Bridge, in the near future. No definite decision has, however, yet been reached to use this area as the terminal of a regular service, and I regret, therefore, that no serviceable information can be given in reply to the remaining parts of the question.
