HC Deb 28 July 1943 vol 391 c1570
51. Mr. Simmonds

asked the Minister without Portfolio whether any indication, formal or informal, has been given to the United States Government that His Majesty's Government intend to adopt a policy of monopoly for post-war air transport?

The Minister without Portfolio (Sir William Jowitt)

No, Sir.

Mr. Simmonds

Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman know that the semiofficial statement which emanated from Washington last week and was published in the British Press was based on a misapprehension?

Sir W. Jowitt

I have not the least idea.

Mr. Astor

Has the right hon. and learned Gentleman read the Home Secretary's speech on the dangerous evils of monopoly?
