HC Deb 10 August 1966 vol 733 cc339-40W
79. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Minister of Aviation whether he will now make a statement about increasing and improving air services to the Highlands following discussions between the airlines concerned and the Highland Transport Board in view of the difficulty in the summer in obtaining seats even at a week's notice.

Mr. Mulley

The change over from Heralds to Viscounts, which has already begun and will be completed towards the end of this year, should greatly increase the capacity B.E.A. is able to offer on the Scottish Highland services. These and other improvements are matters which are regularly discussed between B.E.A. and the Highland Transport Board.
