13. Mr. McKie
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation if he is now in a position to state whether it is intended to use Loch Ryan, Wigtownshire, as a flying-boat base.
The reply was that we must await the consultations with other Departments which are now proceeding.
May I ask the Parliamentary Secretary if he will bear very carefully in mind the anxiety which is being felt about the long time which is being taken to come to a decision? In view of the very vital part which Loch Ryan played in the war, will he give this matter serious consideration?
