HC Deb 23 January 2003 vol 398 c507W
Mr. John Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to initiate a new round of public consultation before publishing the Government's White Paper on airports. [91871]

Mr. Jamieson

The consultation period, throughout the UK, is on-going and has been extended until we have consulted on Gatwick runway options. We intend to issue a revised South East consultation document next month. The consultation period will then run for four months after the date of publication of the new material. Those who have already responded to the consultation will be able to amend, add to, or replace their original response having considered the new material, if they wish to do so.
