HC Deb 01 March 1967 vol 742 cc88-9W
39. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how much use is made of Prestwick Airport by his Department; and whether it can be increased.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

R.A.F. and R.N. aircraft use Prestwick Airport only in emergency. The U.S.A.F. still make limited use of it. At the moment I do not foresee any other military use for this airfield.
