Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Future of Shannon Airport.

16.

asked the Minister for Transport and Power if his attention was drawn to the report last September that Shannon Airport might become aviation's first jet-age ghost town; and if he will give the House an assurance that this report is unfounded.

My attention has been drawn to the report which is quite unfounded and does not represent my view or the views of responsible aviation authorities in this country.
