§ 38. Mr. Perkins
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether Imperial Airways, Limited, have made arrangements to ensure that all ports of call in Europe are adequately supplied throughout 24 hours with full radio facilities to enable captains in charge of flying-boats to use beam or direct bearings or reverse bearings to enable the boats to navigate direct to and from all stations?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Air (Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead)
Adequate wireless telegraph facilities exist at all ports of call in Europe with the exception of two in respect of which negotiations are, I understand, in hand to secure an improvement. In the meantime the best possible use is being made of neighbouring wireless telegraphy stations.
