HC Deb 07 November 1972 vol 845 c134W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what discussions he has had with the United States and Canadian Governments about United States supplementals fifth-freedom operations between the United Kingdom and Canada.

Mr. Onslow

In several discussions during 1971, my Department's officials pointed out to the United States authorities that, since the United States CAB does not normally allow British charter operators to perform fifth-freedom charter flights outward from the United States of America, a similar limitation would be placed upon United States "supplemental" operators' fifth-freedom flights outward from this country. This took effect from 1st April, 1972. The United Kingdom has no locus regarding controls in Canada upon United States operators' flights.
