asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether British or American air-liners will be used on the projected trans-Canada air line; and when this line is expected to start operations?

As regards the first part of the question, I understand that no decision has yet been made by the Canadian Government, and as regards the second part, that it is hoped to inaugurate the service by 1st July next.
§ Mr. PERKINS
Can my right hon, Friend tell the House whether British manufacturers of civil aircraft are capable -of competing with the manufacturers in the markets of the world, and if so why it is that a British subsidised company, subsidised by the taxpayers of this country, has recently bought American aircraft?
