§ 46. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for India what information he has about the 1625 operations of the Royal Dutch air lines from Amsterdam to Batavia by way of Calcutta and Rangoon; and what steps have been taken to meet difficulties that have been experienced with the landing grounds and ground organisations in India and Burma?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Wedgwood Benn)
With unimportant interruptions, a regular fortnightly service from Amsterdam to Batavia has been operated since September, 1930, and I understand that this service will be run as a weekly one from 1st October next. Progress is being made with the ground organisation in India and Burma as funds permit, and a chain of landing grounds along the trans-India route from Karachi to Victoria Point is now in regular use.
