For journeys within the United Kingdom, members of the Cabinet have at their disposal the regular services of British European Airways and its associates: where necessary, commercial aircraft can be chartered. Service aircraft or aircraft of the Ministry of Civil Aviation Flying Unit are available in appropriate cases.

Air Commodore Harvey:
