Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (8th Day): Amendment 281 (18 Sep 2023)

Baroness Randerson: ...what needs to be done is to take these two factors together. Therefore, there is no justification for the expansion of airports in the south-east, and, in particular, no justification for expanding Heathrow for a third runway.

High Speed 2 (18 Sep 2023)

Robert Syms: ...for 20 months, I always privately had the view that Old Oak Common was a more sensible place to stop, because the Elizabeth line runs straight through Old Oak Common and can deposit people from Heathrow into the city. As for anything to do with Euston, it is a very small site and horrendously expensive. However, the logic of the railway is that it does have to go to Manchester and beyond,...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: Hornsey and Wood Green (15 Sep 2023)

Jesse Norman: ..., and where possible reducing, the total adverse effects on health and quality of life from aviation noise. The Government sets noise controls, including restrictions on night operations, at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted Airports as these airports are “designated” under the Civil Aviation Act 1982. This reflects these airports’ strategic importance and the need to balance the...

Private Parking Code of Practice - Question for Short Debate (14 Sep 2023)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: ...need motorists to feel encouraged to come to shop and carry goods home with them easily. Finally, I mention APCOA, which the noble Lord, Lord Lipsey, referenced, in respect of one specific matter: Heathrow. It is not exactly a parking charge but it is in lieu of one that, when one goes to Heathrow, one has to pay a £5 penalty for visiting. I do not object to that in principle but I object...

World Sepsis Day (13 Sep 2023)

Christina Rees: ...painkillers. I got on the flight home. During a short stopover at Singapore airport, I started being sick, but I thought it might be travel sickness. I just wanted to sleep. By the time I landed at Heathrow I was in a bit of a mess, but I managed to get to Paddington and get on the train back to Wales. The pain and swelling had increased, but I was so exhausted I just fell asleep. I got...

Backbench Business: Tax-free Shopping for International Visitors — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] ( 7 Sep 2023)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...countries. In 2022, 75% visited France but only a tiny 42% visited the UK. The Minister has quite rightly been asking for real evidence on the ground; I will give it to her now. Evidence from Heathrow airport shows that Chinese visitor numbers in July 2023 were at 88% of their 2019 levels, but spending in the shops at Heathrow was at just 33%. The Chinese are coming to the UK, but they are...

Duty on Shopping: UK Entry Points ( 6 Sep 2023)

Victoria Atkins: ...either in the confines of the airport or station or beyond them. The hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) mentioned her local airport of Edinburgh. I am thinking of arrivals at Heathrow, where once a passenger has gone through customs, they are in the arrivals hall, and there are shops there selling products, as one would expect. I must confess that I have never tried to buy...

Treasury: HS2: Cost ( 5 Sep 2023)

Graham Stringer: ...for that is our lack of investment in national infrastructure. Slowing down HS2 is a bad move when it comes to improving our infrastructure, and it is years since we agreed to a third runway at Heathrow. Does the Minister agree that if we are to improve our productivity, we have to invest in infrastructure?

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Airports: Fees and Charges (21 Jul 2023)

Jesse Norman: ...fairly. Most airports’ websites contain information on the car parking and drop-off options available and recommendations of the best options depending on the length of stay. For example, Heathrow Airport’s website states that up to 30 minutes free parking is available at their Long Stay car parks where free shuttle buses operate to the terminals. Birmingham Airport’s website...

Transport: Heathrow Airport Expansion: Funding (13 Jul 2023)

Heathrow Airport Expansion: Funding

Transport: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2023)

John Spellar: Can I go back to the astonishingly feeble answer from the Minister of State, the right hon. Member for Hereford and South Herefordshire (Jesse Norman), about Heathrow, which is a major international hub, a major export centre, the biggest single site employer, with, I am pleased to say, a well-organised union workforce, and vital for west London? How can the Government not have a view or a...

UK-Mongolian Relations (12 Jul 2023)

Daniel Kawczynski: ..., but we are entering a period when critical minerals will have even more significance for our economy than oil did in the 1950s—I am absolutely convinced of that. When flying back to Heathrow across the North sea, we see the thousands of wind turbines that we are building. We have more offshore wind than any other country in Europe, yet not a single one of those turbines can operate...

Illegal Migration Bill (11 Jul 2023)

David Simmonds: ...willing to rise to the challenge of the international refugee situation, with 550,000 people settled in the UK through humanitarian routes. In 24 years in a local authority covering the area of Heathrow airport, I certainly have experience of being on the receiving end of many different sets of Government policy—not just from the coalition and Conservative Governments, but from Labour...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Duty Solicitors: Greater London (10 Jul 2023)

Mike Freer: ...quarterly statistics. Legal Aid services are not procured at constituency level, however, the duty schemes falling with the Feltham and Heston constituency include Brentford, Ealing and Uxbridge, Heathrow, Richmond-Upon Thames and West London. At a national level, the LAA monitors capacity across criminal legal aid contracts on an ongoing basis and, where demand is greater than the...

UK: Violence Against Women and Girls - Motion to Take Note (29 Jun 2023)

Baroness Thornton: ...debate about violence against girls and women into some kind of culture war that she talks about in the House often. Last Sunday morning at about 7.30 am, having dropped my husband off to get to Heathrow, I stopped for a coffee on the way home. As I crossed the road back to my car, a man stopped to let me cross the road, which was nice. He then slowed down next to me and through his window...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Heathrow Airport: Railways (27 Jun 2023)

Baroness Randerson: To ask His Majesty's Government what progress they have made on their plans for new guidance to replace Southern Access to Heathrow: Strategic Objectives, published on their website on 4 November 2019; and, further to the answer by the Minister of the State for Transport on 22 July 2020 (HC Deb col 2268), in which he said that he was keen to “move forward at pace”, what specific steps...

Road User Charging Schemes — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (26 Jun 2023)

Louie French: ...about the last Labour Government’s proposals for the purchase of diesel vehicles. When Sadiq Khan was the Transport Secretary at the end of their time in government, he was also in favour of Heathrow expansion. He does not like to talk about that either. One of his most fundamental policies and investments during his mayoralty is the Silvertown tunnel, which will encourage many more...
