HC Deb 29 July 1932 vol 267 c1789
21. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air which member of the British Government Delegation to Ottawa will be instructed with regard to the negotiations at that Conference with regard to Imperial air routes; and whether any expert will accompany the Delegation to assist in such negotiations?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Sassoon)

As my right hon. Friend the Lord President of the Council has explained, the responsibility for dealing with particular questions at the Conference will be that of the Delegation as a whole. It is proposed, however, that they shall have the assistance of a representative of the Air Ministry who will proceed to Ottawa for a short period whilst the Conference is in session, in order that expert advice may be available on any air questions which may arise.
