“London is already struggling to meet the existing World Health Organisation and EU standards for both air quality and noise pollution," said Susan Kramer.

Commenting on news the London Assembly’s Environment Committee has “grave concerns” over the environmental safeguards in place for the expansion of Heathrow Airport, Susan Kramer MP, who has led the Liberal Democrat campaign against a third runway said:

“London is already struggling to meet the existing World Health Organisation and EU standards for both air quality and noise pollution.

“Heathrow’s third runway will make this impossible, with serious consequences for the health and quality of life for people in London.

“The Government must listen to the concerns of this committee and scrap its misguided plans for a third runway.”
