HC Deb 04 July 1935 vol 303 c2002
48. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked Secretary of State for Air whether he is now in a position to make any statement in regard to the outcome of the negotiations which took place between the British delegation which visited Empire Governments and administrations on the Australian air route during the early part of the current year; and whether he can now state by what date it will be possible to inaugurate the scheme for more frequent flights over this route with reduced charges for mails?

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

Discussions are still proceeding, and I regret that I am not yet in a position to make any further statement or to give a firm date for the inauguration of the scheme.
