§ 15. Captain A. Graham
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the present total lack of direct Imperial communications by sea, air or cable, and in view of the numerous local landing sites available for both aeroplanes and seaplanes, he will arrange for some air service, or at least one of the nine weekly Imperial Airways services to Egypt, to call at Cyprus?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Air (Captain Harold Balfour)
I regret that so far as the Empire air mail services are concerned, it would not be operationally practicable to arrange a call at Cyprus under the present scheme. Cyprus could best be served by a feeder service from Egypt or Palestine. This will be borne in mind in connection with projected future developments in this area.
