HC Deb 20 June 1935 vol 303 c560
81. Mr. MANDER

asked the Secretary of State for Air on what occasions during the last three years consent has been given for the passage of military aircraft from foreign countries through British territory or territory in which this country has some interest; and whether, in any cases and, if so, what, permission has been refused?

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

About 30 applications have been granted since the beginning of 1933, according to the information available in the Air Ministry. I am not aware of any case of refusal during this period.


Does that information cover a country like Egypt?


It would cover any country over which facilities were granted.
