asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation by whose authority the notice board at Bovingdon Airport bears the message, "The United States Air Force Welcomes you to Britain."

A notice reading "The United States Air Force, Bovingdon Airport, welcomes you" was very naturally and quite properly placed outside a hut used exclusively by the United States Air Force for passengers on their own air transport services. Because the notice was visible to passengers on other services using nearby buildings and gave rise to misunderstanding, the United States authorities removed it on 19th July.
