HC Deb 28 March 1980 vol 981 c703W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he will permit transatlantic traffic at Speke airport.

Mr. Tebbit

The granting of air transport licences for British airlines is a matter for the CAA. My Department is responsible for the issue of operating permits for foreign airlines. Since no application for transatlantic services from Speke has been made to the CAA or to my Department the question of the grant of permission does not arise.
