HC Deb 09 July 1947 vol 439 c2204
35. Mr. Gammans

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why the British Caribbean Airways, Limited, a British company registered in Jamaica, has been refused Jamaican designation as a scheduled carrier between Jamaica and the U.S.A.

Mr. Creech Jones

I am still in correspondence with the Governor of Jamaica on this matter and am not aware that any final decision on the application of British Caribbean Airways has yet been taken.

Mr. Gammans

Is the Secretary of State aware that while he has been in correspondence with the Governor other nations are, in fact, lifting the trade?

Mr. Creech Jones

That hardly arises on this matter.
