star this property answer text <p>We are testing the Airports Commission’s work on air quality further against the Government’s new air quality plan, as recommended by the Environmental Audit Committee. This is additional work to test compliance, and build confidence that expansion can take place within legal limits. The further work on air quality is only one element of a wider package of further work.</p><p> </p><p>We are dealing with concerns about noise to get the best outcome for residents, and doing more work on carbon to address concerns on sustainability, particularly during construction. We want to make sure that communities get the best possible mitigation deal.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, we are doing due diligence on the plans for surface access to the airports by talking to both the promoters and the key delivery bodies.</p><p> </p><p>We are also carrying out extra assurance to assess the runways’ potential both locally and nationally so it can deliver more jobs, more growth and more apprenticeships.</p><p> </p><p>On funding and financing, the Airports Commission has provided an extensive examination of the costs, financing, and commercial viability of airport expansion. The Airports Commission and the scheme promoters have made it clear that new runway capacity will be privately delivered and financed.</p><p> </p><p>We anticipate that all this further work will conclude over the summer.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>There were no breaches of the published service standard at Gatwick on Sunday 4th January 2015; the maximum immigration queue waiting times on that day were as follows:</p><p>North Terminal: 35 minutes for non-EEA passengers and 20 minutes for EEA passengers.</p><p>South Terminal: 32 minutes for non-EEA passengers and 12 minutes for EEA passengers.</p><p>The published service standard for queue times at the border specifies that 95% of British, EEA and Swiss passengers should wait no longer than 25 minutes at passport control and 95% of non-EEA passengers should wait no longer than 45 minutes.</p><p>The operational managers continually monitor the situation with regard to queuing times to ensure staff are flexibly deployed in the right numbers at the right times. The security of the border and the safety of the public are our priorities. At Gatwick, eligible travellers also have the option of using the e-Passport gates, of which there are 20 (15 in the South Terminal and 5 in the North Terminal), all of which were in operation on the day in question.</p><p> </p>
