MPs debate the Airports National Policy Statement

MPs debated the Airports National Policy Statement in the House of Commons on Monday 25 June 2018

The Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling, opened the debate on behalf of the Government and stated that if the House endorses the proposed national airports policy statement today, it will move on from decades of debate and set what is, to my mind, a clear path to our future as a global nation in the post-Brexit world. 

Shadow Secretary of State for Transport, Andy McDonald, responded on behalf of the Opposition and commented on how Members would not have the opportunity to see the  Committee on Climate Change report before the vote and how Members of the House were being asked to vote without full knowledge and without the full set of facts.
