HC Deb 15 November 1965 vol 720 c28W
Sir G. Sinclair

asked the Minister of Aviation what plans he has to build a second runway at Gatwick Airport; and when he expects to begin construction.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Preliminary engineering studies have been made, but no decision has been taken to start the construction of a second runway for London (Gatwick) Airport. It will be for the British Airports Authority, in consultation with my Ministry, to decide how and when they wish to proceed in this matter.
