Heathrow airport expansion plan may be put to free cabinet vote
Cabinet Office paper, revealed accidentally, suggests collective responsibility may be waived by Theresa May
A leaked Whitehall document suggests Theresa May could hold a free vote on expanding airport capacity, potentially allowing some cabinet ministers to oppose a third runway at Heathrow.
The Cabinet Office paper, photographed on the tube and passed to Channel 4 News, examines the possibility of waiving collective responsibility for any vote on the highly controversial issue of expanding an airport in south-east England.
