HC Deb 07 May 1962 vol 659 c13W
Mr. Owen

asked the Minister of Aviation if he will make a statement of Government policy for the development of internal air transport services in Great Britain.

Mr. Thorneycroft

All operators are equally free to apply to the Air Transport Licensing Board for licences to operate air services. It is for the board, in the first instance, to decide what applications should be licensed.
