asked the Minister of Aviation when he anticipates completion of the terminal building for international traffic at London Airport.

The first part of the new passenger terminal for long-haul services should be completed during October and the remainder next spring.

Can my right hon. Friend say whether, when this long overdue building is completed, all motor traffic will be able to drop passengers at the door of the building instead of leaving them across the road, as is the case with the other building at the Central Airport?

I will bear in mind what my hon. Friend has said. I do not want to commit myself in advance of knowing what the traffic will be at Heathrow by saying just where everyone will go.
