§ 69. Mr. Lubbock
asked the President fo the Board of Trade whether he is aware that British United Airways are increasing the midweek fare from London to Alderney from £4 9s. to £6 on bookings made in advance of the publication of a notice in the Civil Aviation Licensing Notices, in contravention of condition No, 201 of the United Kingdom Domestic Air Tariff; and what action he will take to prevent this in accordance with Her Majesty's Government's prices and incomes policy.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
I am aware of the proposed increase in fare. The necessary application has been made by the airline to the Air Transport Licensing Board, who have a statutory duty to take national prices and incomes policy into account. I am satisfied that the airline's provisional booking arrangements do not contravene the relevant tariff conditions.
