HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 c98W
53. Mr. Fortescue

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of Section 2 of the Eighth Report of the Air Transport Licensing Board, he will issue a general direction to British European Airways and its nationalised subsidiaries to withdraw from domestic routes as and when independent airlines are prepared to serve them.

Mr. William Rodgers

No. Nor is the hon. Gentleman's conclusion one I would draw from the Report.
