holding answer 23 June 2008

Over 65,000 responses have been received to the 'Adding Capacity at Heathrow Airport' consultation. These included responses received as letters, emails, postcards and response forms, sent either direct to the Department or to the designated freepost address of our response handling agents.

A number of the responses received by the Department asked questions relating to the consultation issues and we replied to 229 stating that "it will not be possible to provide you with answers to the individual issues raised". However, all responses have been carefully analysed and the report on this will be made available alongside ministerial decisions, which are expected later this year. These decisions will take account of all the evidence, including responses to the consultation.
