asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will facilitate the provision for space in passenger aeroplanes for British business men desirous of proceeding overseas for the purpose of the restoration of export trade.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Yes, Sir, subject to war requirements. Air passages are allocated under a system of priorities, and I fear that with so many competing claims on the space available there is little opportunity for conveying passengers other than those travelling on public business.
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he will facilitate the provision of passenger accommodation on ships for British business men desirous of going overseas for the purpose of re-establishing British trade.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
My Noble Friend's suggestion will be most sympathetically considered so soon as military considerations permit, but I cannot now hold out hopes of increased facilities in the immediate future.
