HC Deb 15 March 1994 vol 239 c649W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what discussions he is to have with Wandsworth borough council on the proposed increase in aircraft traffic flying into Heathrow airport; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Norris

On 10 November 1993 we issued a consultation paper on night flights at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports for summer 1994 and for winter 1994–95 to summer 1998. A written response has been received from Wandsworth borough council and will be taken into account, along with all other responses received, in reaching a decision on the restrictions to apply from winter 1994–95 onwards. No discussions have been requested by Wandsworth borough council.
