§ Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Minister of Aviation from what local authorities, other organisations, and individuals he has received representations objecting to the proposed development of Abbotsinch Airport; and what was the general nature of his replies.182W
§ Mr. J. Amery
I have received representations from the county councils of Ayr, Roxburgh and Stirling and the Burgh of Stornoway and from about a dozen individuals. I have explained in my replies that Renfrew Airport is to be closed because there are limitations on its further development and that Abbotsinch is the most satisfactory alternative as an airport for the Clyde Valley.
