Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what (a) percentage and (b) numerical change there has been in night flights at Heathrow Airport in each of the last five years. 
Ms Buck: The present night restrictions regime at Heathrow refers to both a night period, 23000700 hours, and a night quota period 23300600. In the night quota period movements by all types of aircraft, except the very quietest, are restricted by a movements limit and a noise quota, which are set for each season. At Heathrow, the movements limit for each summer season from 200004 was 3,250 and for winter 200102 to 200405 was 2,550. The airport operator may carry over a limited number of movements from one season to the next depending on usage from the previous season.

|Summer 2000summer 2004||||||-1.2|

Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many letters to his Department from hon. Members in session (a) 200405 and (b) 200506 remain unanswered, broken down by those which are (i) one month old, (ii) two months old, (iii) three months old, (iv) four months old and (v) over six months old. 
Ms Buck: All letters received more than one month before the hon. Member's question have been answered. The Cabinet Office, on an annual basis, publishes a report to Parliament on the performance of Departments in replying to Members/Peers correspondence. The Report for 2004 was published on 6 April 2005, Official Report, columns 13740ws.
Derek Twigg [holding answer 20 July 2005]: The West Midlands Route Utilisation Strategy was published by the Strategic Rail Authority (SRA) on 21 July. The Strategy concluded that Coventry Arena station would present low levels of traffic for most of the week with occasional large event demands requiring train capacity far in excess of the current provision. The cost of rail provision to meet these high peaks in demand would be very high. Consequently a proposal to meet this demand had not been evaluated by the promoter and no business case for the station had been received. The SRA concluded that it was unable to support the inclusion of the station on the Coventry-Nuneaton route.
The SRA wrote to Coventry city council on 24 August 2004 identifying a number of areas of concern with the outline business case. If the council wishes to pursue the proposal, it will need to address those concerns and submit to the Department a viable and funded business case.
