Orders of the Day — Korean Campaign (Government Policy) (25 Jun 1952)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: ...the opinion of the Committee tested upon this matter? So far as I personally am concerned, I would have welcomed it more had it not taken place quite so soon. I was decanted from an aeroplane at Heathrow at only 1 p.m. today, after travelling 25,000 miles by air in 19 days, and after a number of other things, and I might not be quite so clear-headed as hon. and right hon. Gentlemen on the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (30 Apr 1952)

Sir Arthur Harvey: ...out of Britain and they are exempt from tax for such flying. They pay tax on aviation fuel when flying from London to Prestwick en route to Canada and the United States, or perhaps in flying from Heathrow to Bristol. I ask the Minister of State to give this matter his favourable consideration because, by so doing, he will be rendering a service to this great industry, which has such...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, Petrol Substitutes and Power Methylated Spirits.) ( 5 Jun 1951)

Sir Arthur Harvey: .... I want to refer to the question of taxation on aviation spirit. This is a commodity which is bearing the full tax of 1s. 10½d. per gallon. It is a well known anomaly. If an aircraft refuels at Heathrow and proceeds abroad it does not pay any taxation except for internal flying or to the Channel Islands or to the Isle of Man. The jet and the gas turbo-powered aircraft, which use heavy...

Bill Presented: Flying Boats (11 May 1951)

...Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation, who gives the length of the only runway in existence in civilian use in 1941 as 3,000 feet, and the longest of all the very long runways at Heathrow Airport is just over 9,000 feet. That is three times the length in 10 years. We have also to consider the sacrifices that have to be made to obtain these runways. I am informed in another answer...

Civil Aviation (19 Mar 1951)

Mr Geoffrey Lloyd: ...surrounding a runway so that an aircraft can make a visual landing in a clear space over the runway even though the surrounding country is shrouded in fog. The civil story of F.I.D.O. starts when Heathrow Airport, London, was under construction towards the end of the war and F.I.D.O. was included in its apparatus. This was done by an act of the National Coalition Government. Almost at...

Ballot for Notices of Motion: TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (AMENDMENT) (No. 2) (28 Feb 1951)

Sir Geoffrey Hutchinson: ...Of those 374 cases, the Minister of Health confirmed orders in respect of 267. This is not something which is exceptional or unusual. I am told that the projected extension of the London Airport at Heathrow will involve the compulsory acquisition of about 250 owner-occupied dwelling-houses by the Ministry of Civil Aviation, and so far as I can make out, this method of assessing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Brabazon Committee (Recommendations) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr George Ward: ...and for his valuable Report, which will give rise to a great deal of confidence? Has his attention been drawn to paragraph 15 of the Report, and does this mean that F.I.D.O. will be installed at Heathrow, as the Opposition have recommended for a long time?

Mr Frank Beswick: part of the work done under the war-time contract could be used in view of subsequent F.I.D.O. developments and the almost complete change of layout necessary to convert the R.A.F. aerodrome, Heathrow, to the civil aerodrome now known as London Airport.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Air Accidents (Investigation) (22 Nov 1950)

Mr George Ward: Can the hon. Gentleman say why the investigation into the recent crash at Heathrow has not yet begun? There is no reason why all the evidence should not be available as there were no survivors recovering in hospital or things of that kind, which generally hold up inquiries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Fog Dispersal ( 8 Nov 1950)

Mr George Ward: Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that something in the neighbourhood of £600,000 has already been spent at Heathrow on the installation of a form of F.I.D.O.? Can he say whether it would not be possible to adapt the existing apparatus to use the new oil-burning one at very much less cost?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: B.O.A.C. Base, Filton ( 9 Mar 1949)

Mr William Shepherd: Can the hon. Gentleman say how many staff he has at Dorval and when the next move to the proper place at Heathrow is to take place?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation ( 1 Mar 1949)

Sir Arthur Harvey: coming back to the United Kingdom, is Filton the right place for it? It is some way from London and the activities will be considerably divorced from the main operations of the Corporation at Heathrow. I should have thought that over a short-term period of perhaps three or five years with these new types of aircraft, it would have been far better to concentrate them at Heathrow even in...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL ( 6 May 1948)

Mr Osbert Peake: ...slump and with unemployment. Amongst the other matters in Table VIII (c) is Civil Aviation, which is to cost the country £26 million next year. I have referred many times to the appalling cost of Heathrow aerodrome—£28 million for a single airport. It will also be very interesting one of these days to find out how much it has cost the tax- payer to get the Brabazon aircraft into the...
