HC Deb 25 July 1956 vol 557 c406
15. Mr. Remnant

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether the 24-hour licence is now in operation at London Airport; and whether he is satisfied that it is confined to bona fide travellers.

The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation (Mr. John Profumo)

The Answer to both parts of the Question is "Yes, Sir."

Mr. Remnant

Can my hon. Friend say whether any restrictive conditions were applied to the licence so that the licensee carries some responsibility for observing the intentions of Parliament?

Mr. Profumo

The basic responsibility has been laid by Parliament on my right hon. Friend, but the management of London Airport has told the catering management to issue written instructions to its staff reinforcing the oral instructions which it has already given on the subject.
