I am pleased that the hon. Lady singled out Heathrow rather than Gatwick. During last winter’s heavy snowfall, Gatwick airport was closed for only a matter of hours. It was actually the condition of the roads around the airport that prevented people from travelling, so I want to ensure that the record accurately reflects that Gatwick has the capacity to deal with extreme weather conditions.
