§ 75. Mr. Strauss
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether a decision has yet been taken to set up a new licensing authority for air transport, to which powers now exercised by him, and subject to Parliamentary scrutiny, would be transferred.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I am considering with my colleagues what changes would be appropriate in the present arrangements for licensing air transport services and maintenance organisations. The creation of a central licensing authority would, of course, involve legislation.
