HC Deb 22 February 1965 vol 707 c28W
98. Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Aviation if he will consider Belfast-London and other Ulster routes as exceptions to his general policy, and permit one or two additional services to be flown to Belfast by British Eagle in the interests of the travelling public.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

No. The service licensed to British Eagle was the most which even the last Administration considered could be granted without unacceptable detriment to B.E.A. I was content for this service to continue alongside B.E.A., but the operator has decided otherwise.
