§ Tim Loughton
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what his policy is on improving road and rail transport links to smaller regional airports in the South East of England. 
§ Mr. McNulty
Our policy on improving road and rail links to airports in the South East of England (small and large) is set out in the Future of Air Transport White Paper. This recognises that airports are part of our national infrastructure and requires the SRA, Highways Agency to take full account of a prospective airport developer. It also looks to airport operators to work with regional and local partners to ensure that regional and local transport strategies do the same.
