§ Mr. Hayward
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many United Kingdom airports with an annual throughput of over 750,000 passengers have passenger forecast levels to the year 2005 at the same or within 10 per cent. of that level forecast by the Civil Aviation Authority.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
Individual airports forecast their own levels of traffic, in some cases to 2005. Where forecasts are supplied to the Department, they are provided in confidence, and my hon. Friend should approach the airports themselves for information about them.
Any comparison with the CAA forecasts in CAP 548, published in January 1989, would need to take account of the variety of scenarios considered by the CAA for 2005.
