HC Deb 19 July 1990 vol 176 cc711-2W
Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) if, pursuant to his answer of 13 July,Official Report, column 347, he will estimate the implications of increased use of Northolt airport for aircraft noise in the area of the airport and increased road congestion to, from and around the airport; and if he will make a statement;

(2) if he will meet a deputation of local residents and the hon. Member for Ealing, North to discuss the future of Northolt airport; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. McLoughlin

We have no proposals to increase the use of Northolt by civil aircraft, so estimates of possible effects would be speculative. A civil enclave is a separate issue. I am, of course, always willing to meet my hon. Friend.
