§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what study he has commissioned or supported concerning the location of additional helicopter sites to serve central London; what conclusions it has reached; and what consultations relating to them he has initiated with the relevant local authorities. 
§ Mr. Norris
The London heliport study working group was set up in February 1992. Its report was published on 21 March 1995 and copies were placed in the Library of the House.
Any firm planning application for a new heliport, whether in respect of one of the study sites or elsewhere, would first have to be submitted to the appropriate local authority in accordance with the statutory planning procedures.
