HC Deb 28 June 1982 vol 26 c210W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Minister for Trade (1) how many flights into Antigua from the United Kingdom will operate each week; and whether there have been consultations with the Government of Antigua about the effects of this on their tourist industry;

(2) why the application of the Government of Antigua to operate flights by British West Indian Airways between the United Kingdom and Antigua and Barbados has been refused;

(3) what consultations were held with tour operators and travel agents in the United Kingdom before the number of flights to Antigua was reduced; and what representations he has had from Antigua since the changes were made.

Mr. Sproat

I will reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
