§ Mr. A. BEVAN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he will consider using the long-range Fairey-Napier monoplane of the Royal Air Force for experimental non-stop airmail services to Egypt, India, and other suitable countries pending the flight of the machine to the Cape?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
No, Sir; this aircraft has now to undergo further tests and possible improvements. The adoption of the hon. Member's suggestion would in any case impair the high efficiency which is so essential for this special long-range experiment.
§ Mr. PERKINS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air, whether the air mail to the Cape will be continued during the next six months?
