§ Q62. Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the growing practice of Ministers using aircraft of the Queen's Flight, where adequate public transport on routine services is available at less cost to public funds, she will issue a general directive to Ministers to stop this practice.
§ The Prime Minister
I am satisfied with present arrangements, under which the use of aircraft of the 341W Queen's Flight by Ministers is authorised occasionally when other RAF aircraft are either unavailable or unsuitable for essential and urgent journeys.
