HC Deb 26 February 1947 vol 433 c302W
122. Sir W. Darling

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether the Edinburgh airport is now serviceable for commercial flying, or what is still required for its completion.

Mr. Lindgren

The Edinburgh airport has been used for special charters since the beginning of the year but adequate facilities for regular services will not be available until a beam approach system and better lighting are installed. Completion of this work, which is at present held up by weather conditions. will take several weeks.
