Freight Industry Urges Politicians To Vote Yes On Heathrow Expansion.

Speaking ahead of next Monday’s parliamentary vote on the National Policy Statement for Heathrow expansion, Robert Keen, Director General of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) said:

“Hopefully, Monday will see the end of years of procrastination over the expansion of UK aviation capacity, with the UK Parliament voting in favour of a new runway at Heathrow.

“A yes vote will be long overdue good news for our 1,500 member companies who have been dismayed over the ongoing delays on such a huge issue.

“But a vote in favour needs to be accompanied by an expedited planning procedure, which has been mentioned previously, with no reopening of high level arguments, and robust handling of any legal challenges.”
