28. Mr. MANDER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what steps have been taken to carry out the resolution passed by the Imperial Conference for an extension of the regular weekly air service between England and India as far as Australia at an early date?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Mr. Montague)

As stated in my answer to the hon. Member on the 26th November last, proposals have been submitted by Imperial Airways, Ltd., for the extension of their England-India air service to Australia. After examination by my Noble Friend these proposals have been forwarded to His Majesty's Government in the Commonwealth of Australia, the Government of India, and the Government of the Straits Settlements for consideration.
