Heathrow launches PR drive for third runway pegged to Brexit
Airport also presents plans to support UK’s steel industry ahead of imminent decision on new runway capacity for London
Heathrow is hoping an eleventh-hour push pegged to Brexit will secure approval to build a third runway, with a final verdict from the government expected within a fortnight.
A government committee chaired by the prime minister, Theresa May, is understood to be on the verge of deciding whether new runway capacity will be added at Gatwick or Heathrow, and industry insiders expect a verdict on 18 October.
