Commenting on news that the Cabinet has given the green light to Heathrow expansion, Chris Richards, Head of Business Environment Policy at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, said:

“Heathrow is a global freight hub, providing significant freight capacity for Britain's exporters right across the country. The dense global route connectivity from Heathrow ensures this freight capacity is provided in a cost effective way at a significant advantage for British based exporters.

“Because of this, UK manufacturers with the need to export their goods around the world fully back expansion at Heathrow as a catalyst to help unlock their trade with new and emerging markets. The Government's decision has been stuck in a holding pattern now for too long, it is time to land a vote in Parliament and get on with building this crucial piece of national economic infrastructure.”
