§ 13. Major GRAHAM POLE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether any progress has been made towards enabling Bombay to take fuller advantage of the air-mail service between this country and India by the institution of a regular air-mail service between Bombay and Delhi or Karachi; and whether any definite proposals are under consideration by the Government of India towards this end?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Wedgwood Benn)
The Government of India hope that it will be possible to provide au air mail service for Bombay at a date not long after the inauguration of the Karachi-Calcutta sector as a State air service. The technical details involved are under investigation in India. It has not yet been decided whether the service should be operated as a shuttle service from Jodhpur to Bombay or as a more direct connection from Karachi to Bombay.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Are they considering a flying boat service as well from Karachi to Bombay?
