Transport Committee

The House of Commons Transport Committee has started hearings on the Airports National Policy Statement (NPS). Some campaigners have been invited to give evidence as have Heathrow, academics, business people, civil servants and government advisors.

On Wednesday Stephen Clark of TAG and Cait Hewitt of AEF gave an excellent account of the issues. Two professors clearly hadn’t read the DfT’s papers and hadn’t got a good grasp of the issues.
