  • Description

    In a red-painted, four-engined Heron aircraft of the Queen's Flight, Prime Minister Harold Macmillan arrived, September 7, at Dyce Airport, Aberdeenshire on his way to Balmoral Castle for an audience with the Queen.

    He was met at the airport by the Queen's Private Secretary, Sir Michael Adeane, and with him left immediately on the 50 miles drive tot he Castle.

    Although it is traditional for the Prime Minister at this time of the year to report to the Queen in Scotland and stay a few days at Balmoral as her guest, the purpose of this particular overnight trip is to acquaint Her Majesty with his plans for a General Election and to seek a dissolution of Parliament.

    After spending the night at Balmoral, in the quarters so recently occupied by President Eisenhower, Mr. Macmillan will fly back to London for a Cabinet meeting at 10, Downing Street, from which a statement will later be issued giving the exact date upon which the alsatian will be held.
