HC Deb 01 April 1943 vol 388 cc337-8
48. Mr. Granville

asked the Minister without Portfolio whether he is in a position to make a statement on the discussions with the Dominions on the future of civil aviation as it affects the British Commonwealth of Nations?

The Minister without Portfolio (Sir William Jowitt)
