NotesNews: 19 March: Mason, President of the Board of Trade, announced that because he had been "seriously misled" he had "put on ice" the proposed merger of British United Airways with British Overseas Airways Corporation. Mason assured the House that he had ignored the threat of industrial action made by Clive Jenkins, who had said "We entirely disapprove of these freebooting mercantile endeavours. In other words, let 'em bloody well try."
