HC Deb 27 January 1997 vol 289 c42W
Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans his Department has to link Cardiff international airport via(a) a class 1 road and (b) a rail link to (i) the city of Cardiff and (ii) the M4. [12870]

Mr. Hague

None. These are matters for the responsible organisations.

The Vale of Glamorgan council is, with the support of transport grant from my Department, undertaking preparatory work on proposals to improve road links between the airport and Culverhouse Cross. I understand that Prism Rail plc, the new operator of the Cardiff Valley lines, will be examining the feasibility of a new rail link.
