Writing to the Transport Secretary on the first anniversary of the Airports Commission’s clear recommendation for an expanded Heathrow, the signatories highlighted the opportunity the Government has to unleash a new Victorian Age of infrastructure.
In a time of economic uncertainty, Britain needs ready-to-go infrastructure projects that will enhance growth and reassure investor confidence. Heathrow expansion will help restore that confidence and inject £16bn of private sector money into a massive infrastructure project, creating jobs, securing growth across the UK and sending a clear message to the world that Britain is open for business.
The letter comes on the back of the latest polling by ComRes which shows Heathrow expansion has the overwhelming support of Parliament, with two thirds of MPs backing the project.
The letter was signed by Sir Martin Sorrell and signatories ranging from FTSE chiefs and Britain’s key business and trade associations, to leading global brands and SMEs spanning the whole of the UK.
