SSE RESPONSE TO BAA'S Ltd
DECISION TO SELL GATWICK
Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) welcomes the floor coverings
announcement made by BAA today (17
September) that it is to sell Gatwick Airport . CARPETS • VINYL •LAMINATE • SUPPLIED & FITTED
The BAA announcement comes just four weeks
after the Competition Commission issued its Old Carpets Uplifted &Disposed of
Provisional Findings report, concluding that Free grippers and Door Bars
BAA's monopoly was not in the public interest and
that it should sell two of its three London Airports. Steve & Donna
In effect this means Gatwick and Stansted because
it is inconceivable that BAA would choose to sell Office: 01279 730 172 Mob:07939 739 845

earned by BAA's seven UK airports. Unit 11 Heathview Pond Lane Hatfield Heath CM22 7AB
As expected BAA intends to resist the
Commission's call for the sale of Stansted as well WILLS
as Gatwick. This is merely prolonging the agony. BUILDERS
The Commission's Provisional Findings report
catalogued BAA's many shortcomings and MERCHANTS
provided thorough and compelling evidence to
demonstrate the need for two of BAA's London Building, Timber, (01279)
airports to be sold. The Commission is highly Paving Plumbing,

because BAA does not like it.
It is therefore a case of "one down, one to go" and The Maltings, Station Road Sawbridgeworth, Herts.
BAA's reluctance to accept the reality of that
situation means that Stansted's employees and the
local community face several months of
unnecessary anguish and uncertainty.
Commenting, SSE Campaign Director Carol
Barbone said: "BAA clearly wants a pat on the
head from the Competition Commission for
putting Gatwick up for sale in a last ditch attempt
to retain ownership of Stansted. We expect it will
be sorely disappointed.”

penalty notices issued, 11 vehicles seized after they were
found to be driven without any insurance and six people
arrested for non-motoring offences – historic crimes which
they were wanted for questioning by the police.
Despite criticism of road safety cameras, motorists in Essex
are learning that it pays not to speed after only 24,000 £60
endorsable fixed penalty notices were issued during the last
18 months compared to the 75,000 handed out during the
previous period in 2004/05.
Essex County Council’s Network and safety manager,
Rosemary Welch, said: “The cameras have been quietly
working through the urban areas to reduce casualties, but
they are not the only tool being used. A programme of
engineering and education has and will continue to cut
unnecessary tragedy in Essex.”
