HC Deb 06 June 1972 vol 838 cc71-2W
69. Mr. Fidler

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps have been taken to prevent any occurrence at British airports of the murders at Lord Airport in Israel on Tuesday, 30th May; and what instructions have been issued to the airport authorities to ensure security and safety for all air passengers and crews arriving and departing from British airports.

Mr. John Davies

Arrangements have been made for appropriate measures to be applied and the airlines and the airport authorities are taking special precautions. The House will understand why I cannot give details. The House will, I am sure, wish to join with me in expressing sympathy to the relatives of the victims of the Lod Airport tragedy.
