Government faces growing pressure over Heathrow third runway
Government faces criticism from its own advisors over failure to mention emissions targets as campaigners enter second week of hunger strike
The government is coming under growing pressure from environmentalists and its own advisers over its support for a new runway at Heathrow.
The Committee on Climate Change [CCC] has expressed its “surprise” that there was no mention of the government’s legal obligations to reduce greenhouse gases when it announced it was backing Heathrow expansion plans earlier this month.
