To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many consultation responses relating to Heathrow were received in the (a) first and (b) second stage of the night flight restrictions at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports consultation; and if he will make a statement.
There were approximately 1800 responses to stage one of the consultation exercise. The following table shows responses received which commented specifically on the position at Heathrow area:
|Category||Number of responses|
Responses were also received from airlines, airline organisations and other industry representatives but their responses tended to include all three airports and were not generally Heathrow specific.
Responses from the stage two consultation are still being analysed and a summary, including some numerical analysis will be available, in due course.
