§ Mr. Perkins
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production, as representing the Minister for Civil Aviation, when he proposes to introduce a Bill dealing with air transport.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The Government are as anxious as any Member can be to introduce the necessary legislation on air transport at the earliest moment. The first step must be to introduce a Bill to vest the ministerial control of civil aviation in my Noble Friend the Minister for Civil Aviation. This Bill is in an advanced state of preparation. A second Bill will then be introduced to give effect to the Government policy for the operation of air transport activities. This also will be introduced with the least possible delay.
