§ Sir G. Sinclair
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give details of the directions he has given to the Air 105W Transport Licensing Board in favour of its varying Provision I in its licences for inclusive tour charters to allow the operators to reduce the number of their flights taking off and landing by night.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
There are no powers of direction in this matter. My right hon. Friend when Minister of Aviation indicated to the Licensing Board last July that he would welcome any steps the Board might find practicable towards a more flexible tariff base which might enable flights to take place outside the night hours.
