§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is the cost of extending terminal facilities at existing London airports to handle the increased volume of traffic expected by 1985.
§ Mr. Onslow
The British Airports Authority estimates that it will be necessary to spend approximately £75 million on terminal facilities at the existing London airports to cater for the increased volume of traffic to 1980. The authority's plans are based on the assumption that Maplin will be in operation after that date and although some further capital expenditure will be required at the authority's other airports detailed forecasts have not yet been made.
