HC Deb 23 January 1975 vol 884 cc437-8W
43. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will include Luton Airport in the list of airports to be designated under the Policing of Airports Act 1974; and if he will ensure that such designation will be operational before the Easter holiday period.

Dr. Summerskill

The Government are examining the arrangements for policing all the main municipal airports, including Luton, and the possible need for designation will be considered. Whatever decision is reached it is unlikely that designation could take effect before Easter.
