HC Deb 10 April 1981 vol 2 c380W
Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether there has been any change in the assessors appointed to assist the inspector at the Stansted inquiry.

Mr. Giles Shaw

Further to my right hon, Friend's reply of 11 February, Mr. Tench the chief inspector of accidents in the Department of Trade, has had to withdraw for personal reasons and his place as assessor principally concerned with aviation matters will be taken by Mr. William C. Woodruff, who will be retiring shortly from his present post as group director and controller, National Air Traffic Services. Mr. Maynard remains as the assessor concerned with general planning and transport matters.—[Vol. 998, c.340.]
