HC Deb 19 May 1969 vol 784 c27W
95. Mr. Onslow

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the difficulty which interested parties are experiencing in obtaining copies of the Edwards Report, he will extend the period during which he is prepared to receive representations on the findings and recommendations.

Mr. William Rodgers

There is no fixed time by which comments must be received, though obviously the sooner the better if there is to be a White Paper this summer. We are doing our best to make copies available to all who particularly need them.

Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade when he expects to make a statement of his policy on the Edwards Committee Report on air transport licensing.

Mr. William Rodgers

We hope that a White Paper will be published before the Summer Recess.
