Let Britain Fly: ‘The political procrastination has to stop’

London First

Pro airport expansion group Let Britain Fly responds to the latest media reports that the decision to build a new runway faces fresh delays.

Gavin Hayes, Director of Let Britain Fly said:

“The political procrastination has to stop. Heathrow has already been full for a decade, Gatwick will be full by 2020 and all of London’s airports will be full by the end of the next decade. It is therefore obvious that we need additional capacity. Yet it has already taken the best part of three years for a Government commission to conclude that London needs one new runway by 2030.

“The urgency of the situation requires the Government to grasp the moment and respond to the Airports Commission’s final report in a timely manner and get on and make a swift decision to build a new runway. Kicking the can down the road for another year is no longer an option.”
