asked the Secretary of State for Air whether any further progress has been made as to providing an air station on the Thames in the vicinity of Westminster and Vauxhall bridges; whether it has been definitely decided to establish such a station; when it is proposed to use it for a Continental air service; and can he make any general statement on the subject?

Captain GUEST:

Negotiations have been steadily pursued with a view to carrying out the series of experimental flights to and from the Thames at Westminster referred to in the reply I gave my hon. Friend on the 22nd February last. These have, however, not borne fruit, and I regret, therefore, that I have nothing to add to my previous statements.
