57. Dr. Bennett
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he will take steps to ensure that the provisions for the transport of mails by air to Doha in Qatar are improved, with particular reference to the short terminal transit between Bahrein and Doha.
§ Mr. Gammans
Airmails are despatched from this country to Bahrein six times each week and thence to Doha normally twice weekly by the only scheduled service available. There has been some difficulty recently in maintaining the service to Doha because of the condition of the airfield there. I am having further inquiries made about this and I will write to my hon Friend as soon as possible.
