Reopening of Heathrow consultation shows Govt case is deeply flawed

by Steve Beasant on 25 October, 2017

Chris Grayling yesterday announced that a public consultation into the planned third runway at Heathrow Airport has been reopened to include new evidence.

Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable commented:

“I urge all those concerns about the environmental and social impact of Heathrow expansion to made their voice heard through this consultation.

“The fact this consultation has had to be reopened shows the government’s case remains deeply flawed.

“It is difficult to see how a third runway can be delivered without breaching legal air pollution limits.

“We will continue to work with other parties in Parliament to stop Heathrow expansion in its tracks.”
