asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether he is considering making available to Scottish air lines suitable aircraft for local transport purposes, of which there is a shortage, as an emergency measure.
§ Mr. Perkins
The Government's recognition of the importance of local air transport in Scotland is clear from the statement I made in Committee of Supply on 6th June. The hon. and gallant Member can rest assured, therefore, that the needs of Scotland will be most carefully kept in mind in the allocation of aircraft for internal air services, as and when aircraft become available.
