HC Deb 09 July 1962 vol 662 cc95-6W
23. Mr. Eden

asked the Minister of Aviation when he was first approached about the possibility of constructing an automatic garage for cars at London Airport; and why there was delay in reaching a decision on the matter.

Mr. Woodhouse

The Ministry was first approached by private interests in 1955. Until there was sufficient demand for parking space throughout the year, the expenditure involved in the construction of a multi-storey garage, whether of mechanical or ramp type, was not justifiable.
