§ 68. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether any efforts are being made at the present time to link up by seaplane service the islands of the West Indies?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Samuel Hoare)
An Inter-Departmental Committee was recently appointed to explore the opportunities which may exist for the operation of civil air transport in the West Indies, and their Report is now being studied.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider, as a start, forming a base at Georgetown, radiating in one way inland and on the other to Barbadoes and Trinidad?
§ Sir S. HOARE
That is one of the questions which is being considered. The main question is one of money, and the obligations will fall mainly on the West Indies services.
