HC Deb 20 October 1954 vol 531 cc184-5W
121. Sir G. Touche

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation the nature of the assurances which he has received from the British Overseas Corporation and the British European Airways that the proposed development of Gatwick Airport will meet their needs and that they will use it in the way and to the extent envisaged by his Department.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I would refer my hon. Friend to the White Paper on Gatwick, which is being presented today.

So far as British European Airways are concerned, I would also invite my hon. Friend's attention to page 33 of their Report for 1953–54, which I recently presented to Parliament.
