§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) what plans he has to encourage the more frequent use of Hawarden Airport; 
(2) if he will visit Hawarden Airport; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Hain
The development of Hawarden Airport is a matter for British Aerospace, the owners of the Airport.
As part of my continuing discussions about the scope for developing north-south transport links, I am due to visit Hawarden on 6 February to meet senior representatives of British Aerospace. I would hope to hear the company's views about making use of Hawarden for scheduled air services, and to see the facilities at the Airport.
