HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 cc240-1W
48. Mr. Wilkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, before coming to a decision on the site for another international airport near London, he will as a matter of urgency institute a comprehensive national study into the location of airports, air traffic control requirements, military demands on airspace, the future growth within the United Kingdom of both scheduled and charter services, and all related matters.

Mr. Ridley

Much evidence on these matters is already available and the further studies proposed do not appear to be necessary.
