None of the Government railways in the African territories for which the Colonial Office is responsible, at present participate financially in local airway development, although some Government railways operate road transport service. I entirely agree with my hon. and gallant Friend that the closest co-ordination of all transport activities is desirable. I know that the Colonial Governments share that view, but I will again bring the point to their attention.
