asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether a definite decision has been taken to use St. Athan R.A.F. station as a civil air port along with its continued use as a R.A.F. station.
No decision has yet been taken to use St. Athan R.A.F. station as a civil airport as well as for R.A.F. purpurposes. The possibility of joint user of airfields, where this would be economical and practicable, and how the total requirements for airfields can most conveniently be combined and dovetailed together, is included in the comprehensive review which, as my Noble Friend the Minister of Civil Aviation stated on 13th March, the Prime Minister has directed to be held under the direct authority of the Cabinet.
