HC Deb 29 April 1930 vol 238 c32

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is now in a position to make a statement as to whether the Government of India has received and considered any proposals during the last 12 months for the establishment of a regular service of mail-carrying aeroplanes connecting Bombay with Karachi, and as to the present position concerning such proposals?


Proposals have been received by the Government of India, but a difficulty in the way of an early decision is that no aerodrome near Bombay fit for regular use throughout the year is at present available.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Why not use seaplanes and land them on the back waters of the harbour at Bombay, which is very suitable?
