HC Deb 12 December 1985 vol 88 c772W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will initiate discussions with the British Airways International Company about the implications for Southend airport of the refusal of a nationalised German company to operate a bus link from Ostend to Frankfurt which is an integral part of a major regular service from London to Frankfurt; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

No. The implications of this decision are a commercial matter for those concerned.
