HC Deb 27 June 1956 vol 555 c54W
Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what arrangements have been made for an air station in Central London for the operation of helicopters now that the regular services to the South Bank have been discontinued.

Mr. Watkinson

I am glad to say that I have had the agreement of the London County Council to the continued use of the South Bank site for helicopter landings, so long as the site is free from obstruction, probably until the end of this year. My Department will require adequate prior notice of intending flights to enable the air station to be properly manned.
