§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has received about the possibility of opening Sumburgh Airport during the coming summer months.
§ Mr. Noble
Sumburgh services in 1972 were discussed at a meeting arranged by the Highlands and Islands Development Board in Edinburgh last November attended by representatives of my Department and B.E.A. As an alternative to Sunday openings B.E.A. have plans to operate additional services on Saturdays and Mondays during next summer. I have not received any representations subsequently apart from my hon. Friend's request for information to which I replied on 6th December last—[Vol. 827, c.208]
