§ 48. Mr. Perkins
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that British railway companies through their booking agents are encouraging British subjects to fly by foreign air-lines in preference to British air-lines; and whether he will allow the House an opportunity to discuss the matter?
§ Sir J. Simon
I would remind my hon. Friend that this matter was debated on two occasions when the Air Estimates were before the House, the last occasion being so recent as 22nd March. I do not think there is any difference of opinion in the House on the subject, and I trust that it will be possible for the railway companies and the air line companies to reach a satisfactory settlement.
