It seems to me that, difficult though the decision is, it is a decision about the national economic interest and not just about London. It is perfectly legitimate for the Conservatives to take the position that they have taken, but it is not legitimate to ignore the impact on the national economy. I hope that in the coming months the Secretary of State will take time to ensure that we fulfil our responsibility to make certain that the population know what the impact of the Conservatives' policies would be if a third runway did not go ahead.

Perhaps the Rt. Honourable lady might like to consider my following suggestion, as this is a matter of both Economics and environmental issues. This following policy I forward, would if applied to letter, generate additional wealth and address serious environmental problems.

Such problems would not arise if Britain were to follow the example of the Hong Kong and China Government.

There they have built an Internationally famous Airport off of Hong Kong's coast line on rubbish waste from main land China.

If China can be successful in building such a project that has increased thier land mass which in turn has protected their coastline and allowed them to build and sell Mufti Million Pound Flats and Condos with marinas so should Britain.

We have a waste disposal problem so we are all told, so why not combine the two and Turn Junk into Billion Pound land Space?

Destroying good arable farming land for such projects thus making the UK become more and more reliant on foreign imported foods is an extremely bad policy.

Labours continuous disregard for our countryside is very concerning as this is also waste of our valuable resources.
