HC Deb 17 May 1950 vol 475 c154W
41. Dr. Hill

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether he is now in a position to state whether customs facilities can be provided at Luton municipal aerodrome.

Mr. Beswick

Even on the most favourable estimate of probable traffic, the provision of customs facilities would entail the uneconomical employment of customs staff. I therefore regret the designation of this aerodrome as a customs airport cannot be justified.
