Space company Virgin Galactic has urged the government to allow it to launch passenger flights from the UK.
It said if the government failed to support the project with the necessary legislation, then "we will lose a massive opportunity".
MoD bases in Scotland and Cornwall would be suitable sites, it said.
Virgin Galactic, part of entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson's empire, plans to start commercial flights as early as 2008 after testing this year.
