HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 cc157-8W
Mr. Onslow

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what proportion of the air transport movements at London Airport (Heathrow) and at London Airport (Gatwick), respectively, in 1970 was accounted for by general aviation movements; and whether he has assumed that these proportions will not be reduced when making calculations of probable total movements at these airports in 1980.

Mr. Noble

5.4 per cent. of all aircraft movements at Heathrow and 24.8 per cent. at Gatwick. It cannot be assumed that these proportions could be accommodated in 10 years' time.
