Government must examine Airports Commission findings closely

Commenting on the recommendation of the Airports Commission to build a third runway at Heathrow, Labour’s London Assembly Transport Spokesperson Val Shawcross AM said:

“We will now take the time to examine Sir Howard’s findings closely but it is clear that any decision on airport expansion, whilst controversial, has to be evidence based.

“Howard Davies and his team have clearly carried out an in-depth and detailed analysis of the options for airport expansion and it’s now up to Government to issue a prompt response to his recommendations. What nobody wants to see is yet more years of paralysis and indecision.

“It is vital that any final decision recognises the importance of a comprehensive programme of environmental and surface transport improvements for Heathrow to help mitigate the environmental and noise impact of the airport with or without expansion.”
