§ 45. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Minister of Aviation what consideration he is giving to the possibilities of developing Prestwick Airport as an alternative to Renfrew Airport.
§ Mr. Marten
The possibility of developing Prestwick as the airport for Glasgow to take the place of Renfrew has been considered more than once. While there might be some economic advantages in having a single airport to serve South-West Scotland, Abbotsinch is clearly a more convenient location for the traffic now using Renfrew.
