HC Deb 16 September 2004 vol 424 cc1713-4WS
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether Farnborough Airfield will be included in his strategy for dealing with the future needs of airport capacity in the UK. [189116]

Charlotte Atkins

The White Paper "The Future of Air Transport" recognises the potential of small airports, including Farnborough Airfield, to cater for business aviation demand, which is necessary due to capacity constraints at the main South East airports.

However, it is for the operator of Farnborough Airfield to bring forward any development plans, which will need to be considered through the planning system in the normal way.
