Heathrow Airport: BAA

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) what meetings took place in 2007 between her Department’s (a) officials and (b) Ministers and representatives of BAA to discuss the project for the development of Heathrow Airport; and on what date each took place; (201310)

(2) if she will publish the minutes or notes of each meeting that took place in 2007 between her Department's officials and representatives of BAA to discuss the project for the development of Heathrow Airport.

[holding answer 24 April 2008]: No such meetings took place between Ministers and BAA. Notes of all meetings with officials prior to the issue of the recent Heathrow consultation document have been released in response to requests under the Freedom of Information Act. That information is on, or can be requested via, the Department’s FOI response website (March 2008). I will see that the hon. Member is sent copies of all the relevant documents.
