HC Deb 03 July 1924 vol 175 cc1492-3
35. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what is the position of the negotiations between His Majesty's Government and the German Government with regard to passenger-carrying air services over German territory; and whether arrangements have yet been come to for the putting into operation of the British air service to Prague?


As regards the first part of the question, in view of certain conversations now proceeding with the German Government, a statement at the moment is to be deprecated. With regard to the second part of the question, no arrangements can be made for a British air service to Prague until a settlement has been reached with the German Government in regard to flight over German territory.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that for some months now he has put off this matter with this sort of answer about these conversations, and can he give any indication when a settlement will be arrived at?


The hon. and gallant Member is in error in suggesting that I have put off dealing with this question; the Department has done all that is humanly possible to achieve what the hon. and gallant Member wants.
