HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 c297W
76. Mr. Rankin

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give an assurance that the right of the operator to use the airport which best suits his needs is unaffected by the recent Government review of the respective rôles of Glasgow and Prestwick airports.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

Operators can, of course, make what applications they wish. But they will, I hope, take note of the Government's recent statement as to the rôles of these airports, which reflects the views of both Glasgow Corporation and the B.A.A., and frame their applications accordingly.
