HC Deb 04 February 1947 vol 432 cc341-2W
Mr. Granville

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what steps he has taken to expedite the carrying of airmail from central airports to the Post Office; and whether he has considered an experimental helicopter service.

Mr. Burke

The carrying of mail between central airports and post offices is now undertaken with the swiftest means of transport available, usually by direct motor service. The Post Office has for some time been studying the possible use of helicopters for the conveyance of mails, and will be ready to proceed with the examination of schemes for such use as soon as helicopters are available in this country.
