Gratification with the latest developments in respect of the use of Auckland as an air terminal for overseas services, was expressed by the president of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, Mr. H. J. Lichtenstein, at a meeting of the council this afternoon.

Mr. Lichtenstein said the chamber had been vitally interested in the matter, having set up a committee to investigate the matter in 1943. A questionnaire had been sent authorities overseas and a report based on the replies had been forwarded to the City Council and the Government to assist them in their deliberations. The matter of deciding upon a site for an airport had now become a matter of immediate urgency, as it was not known when the services would commence. Whenuapai could be regarded only as a temporary field for use until such time as a suitable airport was decided upon.
