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.
