§ 1. Sir G. Fox
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies his policy regarding private air enterprise in Tanganyika Territory, having regard to the censure on the East African Airways made by the Standing Finance Committee of the Tanganyika Legislative Council in its recent Budget Session.
Mr. Creech Jones
As indicated in the reply which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member on 6th November, it is the accepted policy of the East African Governments, including the Tanganyika Government, that air services on scheduled routes in the four territories concerned should be provided by a state corporation, the East African Airways Corporation. Non-scheduled services can be provided by private enterprise subject to compliance with the local licensing regulations.
