HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 c81W
Mr. John Hall

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress is being made in finding a site for a new international airport near to Freetown.

Mr. Profumo

No suitable site for an international airport has been found anywhere on the south side of the Sierra Leone river, but the search continues. Meanwhile, the Sierra Leone Government has asked a consultant to advise on a vehicle ferry across the river to improve access between Lungi Airport and Freetown.
