asked the Minister of Aviation how many channels and lounges at London Airport Central are available for passengers on outward flights to destinations outside the United Kingdom: and why at least two flights were accommodated in the lounge at the end of channel four between 11.30 a.m. and 12 noon on 21st June, resulting in many passengers being compelled to stand.

Four Customs channels and five lounges, with a total seating for 410 people, are normally available to passengers on outward flights to destinations outside the United Kingdom. On 21st June one of the lounges was temporarily out of service during alterations to the ventilation system, but there was no need for passengers to stand as there were spare seats in an adjoining lounge.
