A statement from Airports Commission chair Sir Howard Davies on a report by Gatwick Airport.
Airports Commission chair Sir Howard Davies said:
This dossier appears to repeat many points which Gatwick made to the Commission in the course of its work and which, unsurprisingly, were carefully considered. They did not alter the Commission’s view that Heathrow was the best option. Using colourful language, as Mr Wingate has done, does not turn weak points into strong ones, and does him and his company no credit.
