Commenting on news that the Airports Commission has removed the Thames Estuary airport option from its shortlist, EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, Business Environment Policy Adviser, Chris Richards, said:

"By excluding the Thames Estuary airport option, the Airports Commission has made the right choice on the basis of robust evidence. EEF has consistently argued that there is no support from industry for a Thames Estuary airport."

"Looking further ahead to the Airports Commission's final recommendation, Government needs to ensure that the analysis continues to be undertaken in a transparent way to ensure the final outcome is trusted by all players. Political parties should commit to keeping the Airports Commission in place until its final recommendation is implemented by the next Government."
