HC Deb 17 April 1935 vol 300 cc1830-1
15. Mr. LYONS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether, and from what date, the train journey Paris-Brindisi is to be entirely eliminated from the Empire air services of Imperial Airways?

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

Entire elimination of the Paris-Brindisi train journey is intended eventually, but I am not in a position to give a definite date. A service which will carry part of the Empire mail by air, to fly twice a week each way between London and Brindisi, is due to come into operation on the 28th of this month.
