§ Mr. Robert Atkins
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what estimate he has made of the effect of his proposals to lease the enclave at Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, for business aviation upon the 1988 air show and those following; and what representations he has received on the matter from the Society of British Aerospace Companies.
§ Mr. John Lee
The implications for the biennial SBAC air shows have been taken fully into account throughout the development of proposals for a civil enclave at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough. Discussions have been held with the SBAC on many occasions during this period by both Ministers and officials.
