A Message from Chancellor George Osborne to Runways UK 6 July 2015

“Our aviation sector has been at the heart of our economic success and quality of life – but current congestion is holding Britain back, and there is a need to increase capacity.

We now need to give this report (The Airports Commission), which is clear, reasoned, and based on the evidence, the respect and detailed consideration it deserves before we act.  We will then decide on the best way to get planning consents if expansion is to go ahead, before coming back to Parliament in the autumn to give clear direction on the plans.

As a nation I believe we must be ambitious and forward looking.  This is a once in a generation opportunity to answer an important but vital question, and ensure we take the long-term decisions needed to secure Britain’s future.”
