Following the Airports Commission’s clear recommendation in July 2015, Let Britain Fly is campaigning for politicians of all parties to support a Government decision to build a new runway at Heathrow.
For years, politicians have failed to make a decision to expand airport capacity, leaving British businesses and passengers grounded, while other countries are taking off.
A positive, bold decision to build a new runway at Heathrow would support British trade and tourism, giving everyone the opportunity to travel the world, whilst generating up to £211bn in economic growth and 180,000 new jobs. The Government must now:
- Respond to the Airports Commission’s clear recommendation to build a new runway at Heathrow in a timely manner (by December 2015 at the latest)
- Ensure a Parliamentary vote to build a new runway at Heathrow takes place as swiftly as possible (by July 2016 at the latest)
I call on my Member of Parliament to sign this pledge and then write to the Prime Minister to ask him to support it.
