HC Deb 18 April 1929 vol 227 cc407-8
43. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has considered the suitability of Holyhead as a marine air port for the Customs clearance of passenger traffic by flying boats between England and Ireland; if so, what conclusions has he formed: and, if not, will he consider this?

Mr. PENNY (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The question of making Holyhead a Customs aerodrome for seaplanes has been considered, but it has been thought best to defer any detailed investigation for the present until it can be seen more clearly how air traffic to and from the port is likely to develop and what the practical needs of the traffic will be.
