Press Release   •   Dec 07, 2009 11:09 GMT

“We don’t need a bigger Heathrow to keep London competitive," said the Liberal Democrat Heathrow Spokesperson.

Commenting on today’s Transport Select Committee endorsement of the economic case for a third runway at Heathrow, Liberal Democrat Heathrow Spokesperson, Susan Kramer said:

“In light of the new Government guidance on the cost of CO2 emissions, Heathrow expansion will actually cost us billions.

“Only this Government could dress up a loss of billions of pounds as a reason to have a third runway.

“We don’t need a bigger Heathrow to keep London competitive.”
