§ Mr. Noble
As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State said on 26th April, we are consulting airport owners about extending present powers to regulate the use of airports where noise is a serious problem. It is, therefore, premature as yet to suggest a date when there might be discussions, against a background of appropriate powers, of the noise problem of any particular airport.
§ Mr. Madel
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, following his announcement on 26th April about the siting of the third London airport, he will now inform Luton Corporation that permission will not be granted for extending the existing runway, or constructing a second runway.
