Labour set to go hostile on Heathrow third runway

The Financial Times has reported that the Labour party leadership is gearing up to vote against plans for a third runway at Heathrow airport, London, in a move that raises fresh uncertainty over Britain’s most controversial infrastructure project.


Senior figures in Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s camp have told the Financial Times that he and his high-ranking colleagues are almost certain to oppose Heathrow’s third runway proposal when it comes to a Commons vote. 


“It has to pass our tests and no one here expects that to be likely,” said one ally of Mr Corbyn, referring to several environmental hurdles listed in Labour’s election manifesto. Another senior Labour figure said: “If the vote is any time soon there is no way we would back it, mainly on the basis of air quality, and that’s unlikely to change any time soon.”
