Medway Conservatives Welcome Heathrow Decision

Medway Conservatives welcomed the Government’s decision earlier this week to give the go ahead for a third runway at Heathrow Airport.

Leader Alan Jarrett said: “Myself and Conservative colleagues welcome the news that the Government has opted for expansion at Heathrow, putting to rest previous nonsensical plans for the Thames Estuary Airport.

We have vigorously opposed an Estuary Airport at every stage and forum available to us, and I remain of the opinion that the Estuary option would bring nothing but misery to the great majority of people in Medway.

The adoption of a third runway at Heathrow not only demonstrates this Government’s commitment to providing jobs and economic prosperity for the UK, but also goes a long way to securing the future of the UK’s global trading relationships.”
