§ 11. Mr. Turner
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies which international airlines, other than Malayan Airways, are at present using the airport at Labuan, North Borneo, as a scheduled stop; and what is the number of flights per month by each airline.
§ Mr. J. Amery
Cathay Pacific Airways.
There are four calls per month in each direction on the Hong Kong-Kuching service.
§ Mr. Turner
Does my hon. Friend appreciate that these figures indicate that fewer and fewer airlines are using this strategic airfield? Further, is he aware that this is due to the total inadequacy over a considerable number of years of arrangements for bringing the airfield up to modern standards? Will he look into the matter?
