Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, attended the Department of Transport?s exhibition on Luton Airport?s expansion at the Harpenden House Hotel on Friday 27th September. He joined residents from the affected areas to examine the Government?s proposals for airport expansion in the South East.
Peter Lilley said:
“The presentation makes it clear how severe the impact of these proposals will be on Harpenden and Hitchin. What?s more the presentation reveals that the Government is assuming Luton will have a new long runway, while pretending that this is an objective consultation process.
“As soon as Parliament returns, I shall be urging ministers to admit that this is unfair and to think again about the whole proposal affecting Luton.?
