Statement on airport expansion
26/10/2016 09:53:00

I am disappointed that a second runway at Gatwick has not been given the go-ahead, given the boost this would have given to Croydon’s economy.

However, there is a pressing need for additional airport capacity somewhere in the South East. Now that both the independent Airports Commission and the Cabinet Sub-Committee have decided that the best place to provide that capacity is at Heathrow, we need to accept that decision and get on and implement it as soon as possible. I will therefore be supporting the decision.
