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.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
