HC Deb 13 May 1964 vol 695 c74W
67. Mr. C. Johnson

asked the Minister of Aviation if he is aware of current press advertisements offering free return flights between Amsterdam and Cairo in connection with bookings at Omar Khayyam Hotels in Egypt; and, in view of the uncertain position of British subjects who take advantage of such offers, if he will discuss with the signatories of the Warsaw Convention the steps necessary to afford them protection.

Mr. Marten

I understand that the flights advertised are to be made by foreign registered aircraft over which the United Kingdom has no jurisdiction. The protection afforded by the Warsaw Convention appears to cover passengers on these flights since both Holland and the United Arab Republic are parties to it.
