HC Deb 05 March 1947 vol 434 cc75-6W
95. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether he is aware that a landing charge of 12s. 6d. is made at both Cardiff and Bristol on a return journey occupying only 10 minutes each way in addition to the fee for the flight; whether he is aware that no landing charges are made in the U.S.A.; and if he will consider the abolition of such charges on all British routes.

Mr. Lindgren

In accordance with the current scale of landing fees at State con- trolled aerodromes a charge of 12S. 6d. is payable for aircraft the maximum permissible weight of which exceed 2,000 lb. but does not exceed 4,000 lb. There is no fee for the flight. The answer to the second and third parts of the Question is "No, Sir."
