London First comment on the Sir Howard Davies Commission

Commenting on the announcement of the Davies Commission members, Baroness Jo Valentine says:

“We welcome the announcement of the Davies Commissioners. We are relying on them to provide the rational independent analysis which will lay the foundations for political consensus. But we also need them to recognise the urgency of providing answers – on the current timetable we will not see progress for over a decade. We cannot prevaricate while competitors are growing capacity and establishing their links to growth markets.

We call on the commissioners urgently to provide a route map to delivering more hub capacity and growing our air links in under a decade. Our economy depends on it.”
