Heathrow airport expansion backed by George Osborne
Former chancellor says there is ‘overwhelming economic case’ for extra runway at Britain’s largest airport
George Osborne, the former chancellor of the exchequer, has said the government must approve the construction of an extra runway at Heathrow, claiming there was an “overwhelming economic case” for expansion at Britain’s largest airport.
Osborne, who has been careful to avoid public interventions since leaving government after the EU referendum in June, said on Thursday that Heathrow expansion should be prioritised over Gatwick “or else, in practice, nothing will get built”.
