LONDON Oct 10 The British government decision
on whether to build new airport capacity at London's Heathrow
or Gatwick will be announced in October, the Prime
Minister's spokesman said on Monday.
Prime Minister Theresa May had said earlier this month that
the decision would be made "shortly".
Heathrow, Britain and Europe's busiest airport, and smaller
rival Gatwick, have been battling for government approval to
build an extra runway for years, with the repeatedly delayed
decision pushed back again after Britons voted to leave the EU
