HC Deb 05 May 1964 vol 694 c154W
Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Minister of Aviation whether he will take steps to secure the wider acceptance of the potential of air travel in Scotland, as recommended in the Scottish Council for Development and Industry Report issued this week; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Marten

The importance to Scotland of air transport facilities is already widely recognised and has, for instance, been emphasised in the Government's White Paper on Central Scotland (Cmnd. 2188). Scotland's air communications have been greatly developed during the last few years, and there appears to be no lack of publicity for the services.
