Type: Debate
Proceeding: 54509
Member: Lilley, Peter

Date of Proceeding: 26.01.2006

Title: Luton Airport
Description: I wish to present a petition opposing the massive expansion of Luton airport with two runways and two terminals, disgorging 30 million cars on to the roads of Hertfordshire. The petition has been signed by 7,710 local residents. There have also been 1,770 text messages and more than 1,000 letters, 250 of which arrived in today‘s post.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to ensure that Luton airport remains a medium haul, medium sized airport and to refuse permission for plans to make it second only in capacity to Heathrow.


And the Petitioners remain, etc.
