HC Deb 07 February 1968 vol 758 c140W
89. Mr. Kirk

asked the President of the Board of Trade what studies were made of the effect of crosswinds before the decision was taken to realign the runways at Stansted Airport.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu:

Figures obtained from the Meteorological Office indicate that the effect will be very small. Final decisions on the alignment of the runways will not be taken until after consultations with the local authorities.
