HC Deb 10 May 1973 vol 856 c164W
Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what profit target he has set the British Airports Authority; what representations he has received from British airlines on this subject; and what replies he has given.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

No target was set for the year 1972⤓73. The future target is under consideration. I have received no recent representations from airlines on the level of the authority's profits but I am aware of recent press release by the British Airways Board on this subject.
