§ 61. Sir PERCY HURD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what is the position of airways projects as affecting transit between Bermuda and the United States; and if the Bermuda Government is taking adequate precautions for the retention of British control on British territory?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Sassoon)
It is hoped in the near future to organise an air service between Bermuda and the United States of America, to be operated jointly by Imperial Airways and Pan-American Airways. If the proposals now under consideration are approved, the base in Bermuda will be the property of the Government of the Colony, and will be managed by Imperial Airways.
§ Sir P. HURD
May I take it from my right hon. Friend's statement that, in the event of a development of this scheme with a view to extending it to this country. Imperial Airways will have a distinct association with it?
