§ Mr. Anthony Grant
The Government statement on the site and timing of the third London airport set out its broad policy on the development and use of the major airports in the South-East and adjoining areas. These airports, taken together, cater and will inevitably con-238W tinue to cater for by far the greater part of the nation's traffic. Given this firm base it is our intention to continue studies aimed at establishing the desirable pattern of airport development in the rest of the country. This work will be extended and developed by the Civil Aviation Authority, which will have the function of advising aerodrome owners and others on the development of aerodromes to match air services.
