look at what

of State for
a fifth Terminal
at Heathrow airport.
His full statement
can be found
have been campaigning
against T5 on
behalf of Putney
I was elected.
I gave evidence
to the planning
in the House
and had individual
all those concerned.
I have also of

has been a great alliance of Councils, residents, local groups
and HACAN to fight this application and, very unfortunately,
we have lost.
numerous occasions I have restated the case that much more
could be done to improve the lives of Putney residents. Rather
than accepting the case for a new Terminal, the Government
should look seriously at alternative airport sites east of
London, so that flights could land and take off over the sea.
I have this week written to the Aviation Minster to ask him
to look into airport and runway provision in coastal areas
east of London.
there must be no third runway. The Minister announced that
he will review the Westerly preference option for day flights,
and I have already called on him to spread the day flights
more equally over Putney and Windsor, as the Government agreed
to do with night flights. If any constituents would like to
support the pressure on the Minister over this, please write
to me at the House of Commons or e-mail me, and I will pass
on your concerns.
European Court decision on night flights should also be implemented
at once. The Government have until the New Year to appeal,
and are refusing to say anything about their decision - I
have already tabled questions in the House about this, and
will continue to apply pressure.
