HC Deb 02 July 1962 vol 662 cc9-10W
71. Sir D. Robertson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science why the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority employs Silver City Airways to run a twice-weekly air service between Manchester, Renfrew and Wick, in view of the fact that these towns already enjoy a British European Airways' service on every day except Sundays.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

This is a matter of the Authority's day-to-day administration, in regard to which my noble Friend is prohibited by Statute from intervening. The Authority tells me, however, that the arrangement does not add to its costs and is a great deal more convenient.
