HC Deb 30 July 1934 vol 292 c2297W

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in deciding on giving the air-mail contracts to railway air services, he took into consideration similar services which could be rendered by private air-line companies; and whether he asked them to tender?


The use of the Inland Air Services which have been placed at my disposal by Railway Air Services, Limited, is purely experimental. My hon. Friend may rest assured that before final arrangements are made, due regard will be taken of any available air service which will be suitable for Post Office requirements.
