Howard Charles Green

National Government

Mr. GREEN:

Will the Prime Minister tell us whether there are any negotiations under way for the setting up after the war of an air route from Canada to Australia and New Zealand similar to the air route across the Atlantic in which Canada, Newfoundland, Eire, and Great Britain are to be partners? It is of great importance to those of us who live on the Pacific slope that there should be air connection with Australia and New Zealand and it would be of great interest to know whether any steps have been taken leading to the setting up of such a route, and if not has the government such negotiations in mind?
