HC Deb 24 April 1968 vol 763 c55W
34. Mr. McNamara

asked the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received since the decision was made to close Brough Airport for commercial passenger traffic; and what steps he is taking to ensure that alternative facilities will be available before the closure of Brough takes effect.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

I have had representations on this matter from the hon. Members whose constituents are affected, from the City Council of Kingston upon Hull and others.

With regard to the provision of alternative facilities, I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull, West on 10th April, 1968.—[Vol. 762, c. 259.]
