HC Deb 09 November 1987 vol 122 c82W
Mr. Devlin

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if it is intended that the British Aerospace 146 aircraft will be licensed to fly to London's City airport; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Runway limits and maximum permitted noise levels rule out the use of London City airport by BAe 146 aircraft. Changes to these constraints would require a planning applications.
