Expansion will worsen air quality
managements to just ignore the issues and they will go away. I know this because I used to be a union appointed Health & Safety Representative and lost promotions due to being deemed a whistle blower.
It is unacceptable in this day and age for asbestos to be stripped without adequate protection for the public and staff – including those doing the demolition. THE Airport Commission panel headed by Sir Howard Davies gives the go-ahead for a third runway at Heathrow providing it ‘does not delay London meeting its air quality targets for 2030'. What planet is he on? Of course it will exacerbate the situation with the fumes from yet more planes making London's already poor air quality worse than ever.
If the government aren't careful they will end up closing the gate after the horse has bolted.
Before making any decision on Heathrow, there needs to be a full environmental impact assessment which includes the effect on health of the projected rise in emissions from a third runway carried out by an independent and impartial body.
Much as people like BA chief Willy Walsh may clamour for the third runway at Heathrow, David Cameron must not be cowed but stand firm.
