HC Deb 30 November 1938 vol 342 cc443-4W
Mr. Lunn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any steps are being considered for facilitating intercommunication between the islands of the West Indies, with particular reference to the development of civil aviation between the islands?

Mr. M. MacDonald

Yes, Sir. Arrangements have been made for a senior opera- tions officer on the staff of the Air Ministry to proceed to the West Indies next month to investigate the possibility of the establishment of an inter-island air service as a means of improving the existing facilities for communication between the British islands in that area.
