HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 cc36-7W
49. Sir A. V. Harvey

asked the Prime Minister if he will make representations to the President of the United States of America regarding the delay in granting the rights for British Overseas Airways Corporation to operate between Tokyo and the United States of America.

The Prime Minister

Repeated representations have been made to the United States authorities, both here and in Washington, on this subject and I feel sure that the President realises the importance which Her Majesty's Government attach to the grant of the permit without further delay.
