§ Mr. Laurence Robertson
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what steps he is taking to increase air freight traffic through Lyneham; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Ingram
I have been asked to reply.
I have taken the hon. Member's question to refer to civilian freight traffic. No steps have been taken to increase such traffic through RAF Lyneham; requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and are fulfilled on repayment terms, using irreducible spare capacity at the Station.
