HC Deb 21 February 1972 vol 831 c205W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what increases have recently been approved in landing fees and other charges at Heathrow and other London airports; and what action he took to minimise them.

Mr. Noble

I am sending the hon. Member a summary of these changes. They will increase the Authority's revenue from this source by about 8 per cent. This is the first material increase for four years and I have seen no reason to object to the level proposed.
