HC Deb 13 March 1962 vol 655 c1105
11. Mr. H. Clark

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps are being taken to construct an aerodrome on the Seychelles up to full international standard.

Mr. Maudling

A reconnaissance survey team visited Seychelles last year to examine possible sites for an airfield and its report is awaited.

Mr. Clark

May I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply and recommend to him that improvement of communications would probably be the key to the future of this almost "Cinderella" group of islands, the Seychelles?
