One year after the Airports Commission: will a new runway ever get built?

Over one hundred business leaders, MPs and Peers have now registered to attend our breakfast briefing taking place at the end of this month to mark the one year anniversary of the Airports Commission publishing its final report.

The briefing, which takes place one week after the EU referendum, will kick-start a fresh summer campaign led by the business community, designed to encourage the government to deliver a final decision on where to build a new runway in London and the South East by the summer.

The breakfast briefing, on Thursday 30 June 2016, will feature speakers including:

  • Lord Adonis, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission
  • Frances O’Grady, General Secretary of the Trades Union Congress (TUC)
  • John Allan CBE, Chairman, London First
  • Mike Cherry, National Chairman, Federation of Small Businesses

The key message is that whatever the outcome of the EU referendum, the Government must make a final decision on the location of a new runway, and that any further delay by Ministers will only harm the UK’s economic competitiveness and our global aviation hub status.
