All-party committee urges air capacity action

An All-Party parliamentary committee has urged action on air capacity, adding to the pressure on the government to stop procrastinating over Heathrow’s future.

The BBC  reports that a report by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Aviation said that the Goverment should “ensure the UK retains and grows hub capacity” at Heathrow or a new airport.

This follows a call from MP Tim Yeo to approve a third runway at Heathrow, which drew a response from Transport Secretary Justine Greening, who said the government remained opposed to such a plan.

There has also been widespread speculation over a future reshuffle, which might see Greening, elected in her Putney constituency after making a commitment to campaign against expansion at Heathrow, relieved of the transport portfolio.
