HC Deb 07 March 1957 vol 566 c102W
Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what facilities there are for the landing of seaplanes off any of the Seychelle islands; and when such facilities were last used.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

There is a slipway for Amphibians at Port Victoria which was used by the R.A.F. during the war, but there are no landing facilities, other than the sea itself, nor any servicing arrangements or trained ground staff. In 1953 a flight to Seychelles was made by a Catalina from Mombasa but no aircraft have visited the islands since then.
