LCCI comment on Mayor of London's Heathrow Redevelopment Report

Commenting on the report published this morning "Heathrow Redevelopment Scenarios", Colin Stanbridge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) said: "We welcome the Mayor's acknowledgement of the urgent need for both more airport capacity and more housing.

"However we question the amount of money and time that would be involved in this project as extra airport capacity and land for development are needed now to boost UK business and growth."
