HC Deb 13 December 1950 vol 482 c174W
117. Mr. L. M. Lever

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation if he is in a position to make a statement on the progress of the discussions relative to the City of Manchester continuing to retain its own airport at Ringway.

Mr. Beswick

No, except to say that the negotiations are proceeding satisfactorily. No differences of principle have emerged, but there are difficult financial issues still to be resolved.
