Sir J. D. REES
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that Malta was for 10 days without a mail last month, though the pre-War service was six mails a week; will he take steps to improve the service; and whether the local airships can be turned to good account in this behalf?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
I am aware that the mail service with Malta is at present irregular, but the Maltese Post Office is understood to have called for tenders for a contract with a view to improving sea communications with the island. I am not aware of any airship services in this locality which could be used.
