(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Palestine government will be enabled to expropriate land for establishing a landing station at Gaza for the Imperial Airway Company, according to an official announcement made known here.

The announcement states that the Imperial Airway Company was declared to be a public undertaking. This status brings it under the Palestine Expropriation Ordinance. The landing station at Gaza will be the first halt in the Cairo-Karachi air route. It will be opened next year.
