Heathrow Airport: Public Participation

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many consultation documents on the expansion of Heathrow airport have been sent by post to (a) businesses and (b) residents in wards in each London borough. (187002)

I refer the hon. Member to my answer on 17 January 2008, Official Report, columns 1412-13W, to the question from the hon. Member for Putney (Justine Greening). This described the approach we have adopted for distributing the ‘Adding Capacity at Heathrow Airport’ consultation documents. In view of the number of ways in which consultation documents have been made available, it is not possible to determine precisely the split between documents sent to businesses and residents and the number sent to wards in each London borough.
