§ Mr. Coldrick
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is now prepared to use the agreement made with the Manchester City Council for the provision of a municipal airport as the basis for further agreements to extend municipal airports to other parts of the country.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
No. As I said in my answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Withington (Sir R. Cary) on 29th March, Manchester Airport has established itself as one of the most important aerodromes in the country.
