HL Deb 16 January 1979 vol 397 c944WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why it is necessary for Inverness Airport to be closed at 21.45 hours, less than an hour after the evening flight from London is due to arrive, with the result that delays in departures from Heathrow lead to cancellations of the flight or, occasionally, an inconvenient diversion to RAF Lossiemouth, about 30 miles away.

Baroness STEDMAN

This is a matter for the Civil Aviation Authority as owner and operator of Inverness Airport.
