Mr. Benidickson:

1, 2 and 3. There are no Trans-Canada Air Lines airports. All airports at which Trans-Canada Air Lines make regular scheduled landings are operated by the Department of Transport, the Department of National Defence or municipalities.
It is presumed that the reference is to airports at which Trans-Canada Air Lines make regular scheduled stops.
Toronto, Ontario, (Malton) airport, is the only airport operated by this department at which there is, at present, an arrangement with a private operator for the operation of a car parking area.
Public tenders were called and eight applications received, that of Downtown Garages being the highest was accepted and a formal lease is being prepared. The terms are a basic rental of $4,800 per annum, payable $400 per month, plus 35 per cent of the gross revenue per month.
No stipulation is made as to what fees are to be charged by the operator. The charge at Toronto, at present, is 25 cents for eight hours.
4. Airport employees are granted free parking space.
