HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c16
19. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation, when air services will be in operation from South Wales to London and other airports in the British Isles.

Mr. Ivor Thomas

It is planned to open the air service between Cardiff and London towards the end of this year. South Wales will be linked with other aerodromes in the British Isles when the necessary aircraft and ground facilities become available.

Mr. Freeman

Can the hon. Gentleman give further details as to how often these services will operate between London and Cardiff, and at what airport in London they will arrive?

Mr. Thomas

The airport will in all probability be Northolt, I cannot, without notice, give the frequency of the service, but my recollection is that it is a daily service.

Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

Does not the hon. Gentleman think that there are enough Welshmen in London without bringing more?

Mr. Thomas

The object of the service is to take Englishmen to Wales.
