§ 85. Mr. Rankin
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will state the total sum estimated to be spent on each of the projects forming part of the present development of Prestwick Airport; and whether it has yet been decided to build the proposed new and up-to-date hotel at Redbrae.
§ Mr. Watkinson
The Fire Station and Control Tower are estimated to cost £155,000; the runway and taxitrack extension £920,000; and the road diversion £320,000. At this stage it is only possible to estimate that the cost of development of the Terminal Area and Apron will be of the order of £1.5 million. The architect is provisionally including hotel accommodation in his plans for the terminal area, so that before making a decision I can see the cost and relate it to the return to be expected.
