HC Deb 28 March 1958 vol 585 c79W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many of the visitors to Great Britain last year entered this country through London Airport; and how many others used the airport who would not come under the category of tourists.

Mr. Watkinson

It is estimated that 450,000 visitors to the United Kingdom entered the country through London Airport in 1957. This figure excludes those from the Irish Republic for whom estimates are not available. The number of persons other than these visitors entering the country through London Airport was 937,000. Visitors include tourists and business people domiciled abroad for whom separate figures are not available.
