HC Deb 16 January 1979 vol 960 cc738-9W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what military airfields in the South-East are currently under consideration for possible conversion into a civil airport, in addition to those mentioned in the White Paper, "Airports Policy", Command Paper No. 7084; and how far such considerations have progressed.

Mr. Clinton Davis

Studies are in progress to determine those areas where a major airport for the South-East could be located, but the specific sites, including possible military airfields, to be evaluated have not yet been settled.
