asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that Pan-American Airways is starting the first lap of the Atlantic air route from New York to Bermuda this year; and what encouragement is being given to the civil aviation of this country to co-operate with the Americans in starting this trans-Atlantic air route?

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

I am aware that Pan-American Airways are considering the opening of a service from New York to Bermuda. It is understood that their intention is to operate this service, if possible, in collaboration with Imperial Airways. His Majesty's Government are keeping a close watch on developments in conjunction with Imperial Airways.
