§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the establishment of aeroplane postal services in America; and whether he can state if any experiments have been made with a view of establishing such an aeroplane postal service between large towns in this country?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
I have seen statements in the Press with regard to the establishment of an aeroplane service for mails between Washington and New York, but I have no official information on the subject. It is not proposed to establish experimental aerial service in this country at present, as the whole resources of the aeroplane industry are required for military purposes.
