HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c17W
109. Mr. Janner

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether arrangements will be made to enable the proposed Trade Mission to China to travel in one of the latest British civil aircraft and to use such aircraft during their tour through China in order to provide tangible proof of the progressive nature of British industry today.

Mr. Marquand

I am in consultation with my noble Friend the Minister of Civil Aviation with a view to making the best possible air travel arrangements for this Mission. The value of using the most suitable types of British civil aircraft for this purpose is fully appreciated by all concerned.
