Gareth Thomas – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Gareth Thomas on 2016-09-12.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the effect of the result of the EU referendum on the timetable for a decision on Heathrow expansion.

Mr John Hayes

As we move into the new world beyond our membership of the European Union, it is important that we are an outward-facing nation with strong business ties around the world. It is important that we get the decision on runway capacity right. We will take that decision and move ahead with our plans, ensuring that we have the right links for the future.
