HC Deb 11 June 1934 vol 290 c1355W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he has considered recent representations made to him by business interests in this country as to the need for all-round improvements in air mail facilities; and whether he will now consider the drastic lowering of air mail rates, even if some temporary loss is incurred, in order to produce that large-scale air mail traffic without which more frequent and rapid services cannot be provided on the air routes?


As I stated in the House of Commons on Wednesday last, the whole question of the Empire Air Mail Services is at present being examined by the Departments concerned, and some time must elapse, owing to the many complexities involved, before I shall be in a position to make any announcement on the subject.
