HC Deb 11 December 1969 vol 793 c185W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the progress of negotiations for a trans-Siberian air route for the British Overseas Airways Corporation.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

Discussions with the U.S.S.R. about such a route have taken place over the last few months at both government and airline level and indeed are in progress in Moscow at the present time.
