Heathrow




Harrow Liberal Democrats deplore the decision of Cllr Shah to disregard the environmental impacts of an additional runway at Heathrow.




While Labour may not prioritise either the UK's carbon reduction targets or the quality of life of millions of residents of West London, the Lib Dems believe that — despite a massive lobbying campaign — there has not been a good case made for a new runway anywhere in the South-East. With spare capacity at other London airports, an expansion at Heathrow will benefit no-one but the multinational consortium that owns Heathrow Airports Holdings Ltd.


Caroline Pidgeon, the Liberal Democrat Member of the London Assembly, said: "We can improve the UK’s international links through better use of all our airports. It is the triumph of vested interests for this Government to claim that the environmental wreckage created by a third Heathrow runway‎ is a price worth paying."
