§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Trade when he expects to receive the report of the Civil Aviation Authority on regional airports; and what information he has as to its inclusion of details of the Stratford and METRA studies on airports in the North-East and Midlands, respectively.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
The Civil Aviation Authority is conducting a series of separate regional airport studies. The Stratford Report on the Northern Region was published on 9th May and the authority hopes to receive the METRA Report on Central England by about the beginning of June. We expect to have the authority's advice on these two reports later in the year.
