HC Deb 16 March 1956 vol 550 cc83-4W
Mr. P. Williams

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation when it is planned to start work on new construction at Gatwick Airport.

Mr. Watkinson

Site clearance is well advanced and work on the road diversion has begun. Tenders for the first large aerodrome contract covering the runway construction and associated drainage and earthworks are being invited next month.
