§ Mr. Bright
asked the Secretary of State for Trade (1) how many jobs will be lost 598W if Luton airport is closed when the third London airport is built;
(2) whether Luton airport will be closed if the third London airport is built in the late 1980s;
(3) what the effect of building the third London airport on an inland site would be on the air services at present operated from Luton airport;
(4) whether Luton airport will be able to reach its projected capacity of five million passengers a year if the third London airport is built on an inland site.
§ Mr. Tebbit
The study group on South-East airports is considering the implications for Luton airport in its evaluation of the six sites for a possible new London airport. I expect to receive its advice in the autumn.
