HC Deb 01 February 1960 vol 616 cc627-8
40. Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Aviation what progress has been made at the recent Paris meeting on Eurocontrol; to what extent Her Majesty's Government are co-operating; and what plan they have submitted.

Mr. Rippon

Her Majesty's Government are co-operating fully in the studies of the Eurocontrol project. A technical planning group is now being set up and this will meet for the first time on 15th February.

Mr. Mason

Can the Minister say to what extent he visualises marrying the N.A.T.O. radar network to the civil control in order to overcome the problem of air congestion in Europe?

Mr. Rippon

This group will work closely with a N.A.T.O. sub-committee and will consider these matters.
