§ 16. Lieut.-Colonel GAULT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he will consider inaugurating night-flying postal services in order that our inter-imperial communications may be speeded up?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave my hon. Friend the Member for Duddeston (Mr. Simmonds) on 16th May last, and to which I have nothing to add. As I then stated, the matter is primarily one for the operating companies.
§ Lieut.-Colonel GAULT
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the amount of night flying carried on by other countries, particularly by Germany; and does he not think it important that we should retain our position in that as in all other respects relating to the air?
§ Mr. SIMMONDS
Is my right hon. Friend aware that, while he says this is the responsibility of the Post Office, the Postmaster-General says that it is the right hon. Gentleman's responsibility; and can the right hon. Gentleman give us any idea of when this little family dispute will be settled?
