Over 170 of Britain’s business leaders have urged the Government to inject growth into the British economy by progressing Heathrow’s expansion plans.
First ever analysis of Tory Party members’ views on airport expansion.
Poll shows younger and vote Remain members most supportive of Heathrow expansion in response to Brexit.
88% of members say a decision to expand Heathrow would show the new leader capable of ‘putting the national interest first’
Heathrow was unanimously and unequivocally recommended for expansion after three years of analysis by the independent Airports Commission.
Heathrow expansion is a £16bn privately funded ready-to-go infrastructure project that will secure Britain’s place as an outward looking trading nation and send a clear message that Britain is open for business.
In the first ever poll of their views of airport expansion, and as the UK prepares for Brexit, 74% of Tory Party members now support a third runway at Heathrow. Expanding Heathrow is now a choice for the next Conservative Party leader and the views of the party membership will influence the airport expansion debate.
Only Heathrow expansion will allow British exporters to trade with all the growing markets of the world, strengthening Britain’s position as one of the world’s great trading nations
In uncertain economic times, a £16bn privately funded infrastructure investment will create up to 180,000 jobs and £211bn of growth across the UK
By approving Heathrow expansion, the Government will send the strongest signal possible that Britain is open for business and confident in its future
Recent polling shows two thirds of MPs think greenlighting Heathrow expansion will strengthen Britain’s economy
Responding to the Transport Secretary’s announcement to hand over a decision on Heathrow expansion to his successor, John Holland-Kaye, the airport’s Chief Executive, said that a third runway must be a part of the Government’s Brexit plan.

SME involvement in Heathrow’s supply chain is thriving, driven by massive increases in contracts awarded to them over the past three years. Today, almost half of Heathrow’s Tier 1 suppliers are SME’s compared to just over a third three years ago.
