HC Deb 11 March 1936 vol 309 c2113

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air, whether, before entering into any long-term agreement with Imperial Airways, a condition will be laid down reserving the right to support a proposal for the internationalisation of civil aviation?

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

Existing agreements have in no way precluded His Majesty's Government from giving full consideration to this or any similar proposal in regard to civil aviation; and the conclusion of new agreements would in no way prejudice the position in the future.
