Chain of command

Who created the policy on expanding Heathrow and misled Parliament ?

In the absence of named authors of the NPS (National Policy Statement) or the reports that contributed to it, the responsibility must fall on the senior civil servants and the politicians in the chain of command responsible for the NPS. They were :

Caroline Low, Airport Expansion and Aviation Maritime Analysis, DfT

Lucy Chadwick, Director General, International, Security and Environment Group, DfT

Bernadette Kelly CB, Permanent Secretary, DfT

Baroness Sugg CBE, Parliamentary Under Secretary (responsible for aviation)
Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Secretary of State for Transport
