93. Mr. Montgomery

asked the Minister of Aviation, in view of the need for adequate aerodrome facilities in the North-East, what steps he is taking to assist the development of Newcastle Airport.

Mr. Amery

The Government has offered to make a total grant of £250,000 towards the cost of new developments at Newcastle Airport. It is a condition of this offer that the local authorities should appoint an aerodrome consultant to plan the development and that work should begin within three months. The offer has been accepted on these terms.
