HC Deb 21 June 1950 vol 476 c125W
86. Mr. Morley

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation why Aquila Airways was refused a licence for a flying-boat service from Southampton to South Africa.

Mr. Beswick

The application was refused by my noble Friend, on the advice of the Air Transport Advisory Council, because it did not meet the conditions governing the approval of associate services set out in his Directive to the Council.
