HC Deb 14 June 1967 vol 748 c78W
39. Mr. Hastings

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now make a statement on the installation of data processing equipment for freight handling at London Airport.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

Data processing for their own requirements is the responsibility of individual airlines some of which already employ such processing for freight at Heathrow. I understand that discussions are proceeding between Customs and Excise and the airlines about installing a data processing system to deal with the documentary processes relating to the arrival and Customs control of goods imported at the airport.
