§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether agreements have been signed between this country and Persia and between this country and Italy to secure the removal of the international difficulties in connection with the establishment of the weekly air service between London and India, and on what date these agreements were signed: and whether their terms will be published?
§ Sir S. HOARE
As regards Persia, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which I gave the hon. Member for Northampton (Mr. Malone) yesterday. As regards Italy, His Majesty's Government propose that in this case also the agreement should be recorded by exchange of notes, but at present the answer to the hon. Member's question is in the negative. The question of publication will be considered in due course.
