§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for Environment when he is likely to reach a decision following the inquiry into a short take-off and landing airport in the docklands area of London.
§ Mr. Macfarlane
The major inquiry into these proposals closed on 28 October. It is too soon to say when I will be able to make a decision, though I shall do so as soon as possible after the inspector reports to me.
