HC Deb 07 March 1980 vol 980 c363W
Mr. Goodhew

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what would be the effect on Luton airport of the expansion of Stansted airport to the maximum amount of traffic envisaged by his Department.

Mr. Tebbit

Because of the proximity of the two airports, aircraft movements at Stansted interact with those at Luton.

In consultation with Luton airport, National Air Traffic Services is currently considering at what combined level of traffic at Stansted and Luton constraints upon movements at Luton might become necessary.
