§ Captain MACMILLAN
asked (1) the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the question of the Khartoum-Kisumu section of the Cairo-Cape Empire air route will be discussed at any meeting of the Colonial governors who are interested and who are now in this country;
(2) asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can make any statement defining the Government's attitude with regard to the Khartoum-Kisumu section of the Cairo-Cape Empire air route?
§ Mr. AMERY
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Air has asked me to answer the question addressed to him together with this question. A meeting has been held with the representatives of the Governments concerned, but the matter must be referred to those Governments before any decision can be taken.
The home Government is most anxious to support the scheme by any means in its power, but no announcement is possible at present.
