HC Deb 30 May 1945 vol 411 c200
33. Sir Wavell Wakefield

asked, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation how soon facilities will become available to enable private flying again to start in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Perkins

Private flying, like many other activities, will be restricted for some time to come by limitations of petrol and suitable aircraft, and by limitations of man-power and of civil airfields. I regret that I cannot foreshadow how soon these limitations will disappear. I would add that civil flights may be made with a permit from the Ministry of Civil Aviation where special circumstances justify the flight.
