Responding to reports that the Government may delay their response to the Davies Commission, Labour London Assembly Transport spokesperson Val Shawcross AM said:
“With our airports operating at maximum capacity we need urgent action to ensure they can continue to serve the needs of our growing global city. By choosing to delay their response to the Davies Commission, the government would risk giving the distinct impression that they haven’t grasped the gravity of this situation.
“This has already been a long, protracted process and any further delays could damage London’s standing as an accessible, international city. Whatever the outcome of the Davies Commission, Ministers will have to stop dragging their feet and just simply get on with coming to a decision.”
