HC Deb 25 July 1956 vol 557 cc406-7
20. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will give consideration to the provision of a garage at London Airport for the cars of passengers flying from there.

Mr. Profumo

Since car parking facilities at London Airport are at present adequate, my right hon. Friend does not consider that he could justify the provision of a garage there for passengers' cars.

Mr. Gresham Cooke

Will my hon. Friend consider the question of putting up a garage there with service facilities which would enable those members of the public who wish to fly abroad for a few days to leave their cars at London Airport for servicing, as that would be a considerable convenience?

Mr. Profumo

We are in the process of negotiating with a firm to establish a petrol filling station in the central terminal area, but I must repeat that my right hon. Friend does not think that it would be right to establish garages at present.
