HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 c357W
114. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what further consultations and discussions have taken place between the interested parties and the Government since the request for a loan for the capital expenditure on the Heathrow tube extension project.

Mr. Graham Page

A Government loan has not been sought and my right hon. Friend has no powers to make one. Arising out of the Government's refusal to make a grant for this project, I have acceded to the request of the Greater London Council to meet a deputation of that Council.
