Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, will launch a petition against the Government?s proposed expansion of Luton Airport on Saturday 12th October. Mr. Lilley and local councillors will collect signatures in the Market Square, Hitchin between 10.30 and 1pm.
Peter Lilley said:
“Residents from Hitchin and outlying villages will be able to express their opposition to the Government?s proposals by signing this petition. I also intend to launch the petition in Harpenden, which is similarly affected, later this month.
“When Parliament returns in a fortnight?s time, I shall be urging ministers to admit that the consultation process is unfair and to think again about the whole proposal affecting Luton.?
