§ 18. Mr. Rankin
asked the Minister of Civil Aviation how many Scottish companies have applied for licences for temporary air routes in Great Britain.
§ Mr. Rankin
Is the Minister aware that his answer condemns the attitude of himself and the Government in refusing to give the assurance for B.E.A. which I asked for as there is no company in Scotland prepared to do the things which the Opposition expect them to do?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
I was only answering on what has happened up to the present. Naturally this is a matter which must be settled and cannot be left open indefinitely.
§ Colonel Gomme-Duncan
Why are hon. Members opposite so nervous about B.E.A. meeting with competition?
