HC Deb 26 July 1979 vol 971 c398W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade (1) if he will revise the forecast of 83 million passenger movements for London airports for 1990 in view of the substantial movement of oil prices and the reduction in growth of the gross national product;

(2) in view of recent changes in oil policies and the reduction in United Kingdom growth rate, whether he still estimates the passenger movements for London airports by 1990 at about 60 million.

Mr. Tebbit

Revised air traffic forecasts, taking these and other factors into account, are being prepared and will form part of the advice on airports policy which I expect to receive in the autumn.
