HC Deb 19 March 1985 vol 75 c427W
Mr. David Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, in view of the time saving involved, he will make it his policy to maintain a helicopter link between Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

Mr. Michael Spicer

No. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State directed the Civil Aviation Authority last year on environmental grounds to terminate the licence for the Heathrow-Gatwick helicopter service shortly after the opening of the Wisley-Reigate section of the M25.
