HC Deb 07 February 1968 vol 758 c116W
84. Mr. Kirk

asked the President of the Board of Trade what economies are proposed for Gatwick Airport; and what is their precise nature.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu:

In 1968–69 chiefly a saving of £160,000 on account of the postponement of the installation of new apron lighting. In 1969–70 the British Airports Authority expect to achieve a further saving of nearly £½ million through the rephasing of works on the present runway.
