§ 29. Sir W. Anstruther-Gray
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many proposals are now before him for improving the East of Scotland air services; how many of these cater for an additional port of call; and what aerodromes his Department is prepared to provide.
§ Mr. Neave
I understand that British European Airways are proposing to improve the frequency and convenience of some of their existing East Scottish services this summer, but my right hon. Friend has received no proposal involving any additional port of call in that area; the third part of the Question does not therefore arise.
§ Sir W. Anstruther-Gray
May I thank my hon. Friend for his encouraging reply to the first part of the Question? Will he not take steps to have an extra port of call made available between Edinburgh and Aberdeen, because it is very much needed?
§ Lady Tweedsmuir
Can my hon. Friend say whether these proposals include the use of Viscount aircraft, and, if so, when will they come into operation as far north as Aberdeen?
