§ Mr. Morgan
asked the Postmaster-General what was the total value of the air mail carried by British air lines during 685W 1937; how this volume compared with that carried in 1936; and what part of the increase may be attributed to the partial introduction of the Empire air mail scheme?
§ Major Tryon
The total volume of air mail carried by British air lines during 1937 within, away from, and to the United Kingdom, and between points abroad, is estimated to be of about 1,500 tons as compared with a volume of about 1,000 tons in 1936. The increase during 1937 includes about 200 tons directly attributable to the partial introduction of the Empire Air Mail Scheme.
