Responding to the news that a study by the Airports Commission has found that a Thames Estuary airport would cause huge environmental, financial and safety risks, London Assembly Labour Group Transport Spokesperson, Val Shawcross, said:
"The idea of a Thames Estuary airport has long been dead in the water, but if a final nail in the coffin was needed, this is surely it.
“Boris has wasted millions of pounds on this vanity project. With this latest report in mind, he needs to accept that the evidence is now totally against him and that no more public money should be spent pursuing a Thames Estuary airport".
