§ Sir George Young
asked the Secretary of State for Trade, further to his statement on airport policy on Wednesday 1st February, which military airfields in the London area might be developed as civil airports.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
In response to suggestions made during the consultations on airports policy, I am prepared to consider, as one of the longer term options for handling London area air traffic proposals for the development of a military airfield as a civil airport. At this stage I have no particular airfield in mind.
