To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he has any plans to license London City airport to receive BAe 146s.

The owners of London City airport have made two planning applications which would provide for the use of the airport by the BAe 146 and certain other aircraft which cannot use it at present. The applications have been called in by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment for his decision. A public inquiry into the applications, which will be held jointly with a public inquiry into proposed changes to the design of the east London river crossing, will commence on 3 July.
