So that means the possibility of flooding will be considered after a decision is taken about whether to build an extra runway at Gatwick.

Gatwick Airport is on a flood plain and it might be better to think about the implications of that before deciding where to build a new runway.

And it is far from clear that any new runways are needed. We have many airports that are hugely under used. The only full airport is Heathrow and that is only full so that the airlines can maximise their profits by forcing their passengers to drive from Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Exeter etc instead of providing those passengers with flights locally. Clearly we need more jobs but not in the South East. Flights should be provided at regional airports that need the jobs and have the capacity.
