HC Deb 11 June 1973 vol 857 cc222-3W
23. Mr Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if Pan Am. TWA, Air France, Lufthansa, National Airlines or KLM have been consulted by his Department concerning the decision to build a major international airport at Foulness.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

The decision to site the third London airport at Maplin was one which the United Kingdom Government alone could make, after taking all views into consideration. We were fully aware of the views which the airlines had expressed in their evidence to the Roskill Commission.
