o A Ministry of Transport inquiry has een held at Newcastle upon Tyne into an ppeal by Bee-Line Roadways, Middlesrough, against the refusal of the Northern C to allow it to operate special services .om the Tyne and Wear areas to Teesside ,irport.

Mr T. H. Campbell Wardlaw, !presenting the Middlesbrough firm, said tat Clarksons Tours wanted to use eesside Airport, and considered that feeder us services were necessary for the arrival rid departure of planes. The company (pected that 25.000 people from Wearside and Tyneside would book their tours; this would all he new traffic to the airport. Mr Campbell Wardlaw protested that United Automobile Services Ltd. which had opposed the application, had not been called upon to give evidence.

Mr J. L. R. Croft, for United, said the firm held licences which included coaches to and from Teesside Airport. The IC had decided against Bee-Line because it was undesirable to have two services where one would be sufficient.

The result of the inquiry will be given later.
