asked the Minister of Aviation what action he has taken to satisfy himself that the proposed new Esso petrol tank installations at London Airport will not constitute a serious hazard.

The proposal has been considered in relation to the safety of flying aircraft and of the public in the area. Since the company intends to use the area within the approaches to the runway for underground storage and vehicle parking only, I do not regard its proposals as a hazard to flying nor as materially increasing the number of people working within the approaches.
