Lilian Greenwood – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lilian Greenwood on 2015-12-14.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will place in the Library a copy of the terms of reference of the additional air-quality analysis referred to in his Department’s press release, entitled Government confirms support for airport expansion in the South East, dated 10 December 2015.

Mr Robert Goodwill

The Airports Commission published a large amount of analysis on air quality for their three shortlisted schemes. It is my intention to test the Commission’s air quality analysis against the Government’s new Air Quality Plan. This was a recommendation of the Environmental Audit Committee alongside other recommendations that I will fully consider in due course.
