HC Deb 23 January 1945 vol 407 cc678-9W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Air if, in view of new facilities granted to United States Civil Aviation by the removal of regulations relating to number of aircraft operated by United States companies as announced by the United States War Department on 28th November, similar measures are contemplated in this country.

Sir A. Sinclair

No, Sir. So long as the United Kingdom remains a centre of air operations and all available resources have to be concentrated on the prosecution of the war, no change is contemplated in the existing policy under which the number of internal civil air services in this country is determined solely by the requirements of the national interest.
