HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 c304W
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.
