Answered By: 
The Mayor

Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London):  Sure, I will do that, but just to remind you, Chairman, Assembly Member Boff, there is no application to increase the number of flights.  The only application was in relation to the planes with bigger wings that could park there, but I am happy to respond in relation to that.  My understanding is that it has not yet met the upper limit of flights that it has permission for, but I will write back to the Assembly Member with proper numbers.


Andrew Boff AM:  Could you also, Mr Mayor, share with me not only the data with regard to air quality and with regard to London City Airport but also how that data is collected as well?


Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London):  I am not sure.  I will try to find out ‑‑


Andrew Boff AM:  The methodology of collection of that ‑‑


Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London):  I will try to get hold of what I can, Chairman.


Andrew Boff AM:  Thank you.
