HC Deb 14 June 1967 vol 748 cc558-9
28. Mr. Goodhew

asked the President of the Board of Trade why he has refused permission for British European Airways pilots to work extra hours within the maximum laid down for safety reasons, in order to meet the traffic demands foreseen during the summer months.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

I have not refused permission. The pilots' request, which relates only to remuneration for extra duties, has now been examined and I have agreed that in the special circumstances of this case the payments may be made.

Mr. Goodhew

Is the Minister aware that the House will receive that news with great satisfaction?
