HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 cc365-6W
134. Mr. Driberg

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how soon he expects to be in a position to announce the Government's decision on the siting of the third London airport.

Mr. Noble

As soon as possible after the Report and recommendations of the Commission have been received. Time must, however, be allowed for a thorough study of the Report and for consideration of the views of those concerned.
