HC Deb 23 January 1998 vol 304 c704W
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; [24162]

(2) if he will visit Hawarden Airport; and if he will make a statement. [24163]

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.
