Written Answers — Department for Transport: Airports: Noise ( 8 Dec 2022)

Jesse Norman: The Government sets noise-related restrictions at the noise-designated airports (Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted) and ensures these airports assess their noise impacts on an annual basis. For these designated airports, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) produces noise exposure contours. These inform Government of areas significantly affected by aircraft movements, and therefore those...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Climate Change Committee Reports ( 7 Dec 2022)

Liam McArthur: give local councils a fair deal. In the light of the CCC stating that aviation policy runs “counter” to targets, will the Scottish National Party-Green Government now revisit its support for Heathrow expansion?

Scottish Parliament: COP27 Outcomes ( 6 Dec 2022)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...we have previously discussed. Meanwhile, even though we know that it will add some 600,000 tonnes of CO2 to Scotland’s carbon footprint, the Scottish Government continues to doggedly support the Heathrow airport expansion deal. All that leaves the inescapable feeling that the environmentalism of the SNP-Green Government is half-hearted, distracted and comes a distant second to its goal...

Great British Railways and Rail Services in the North - Question for Short Debate ( 5 Dec 2022)

Baroness Randerson: the train line between Sheffield and Manchester, reducing the carbon efficiency of Manchester Airport. That hurts at a time when the Elizabeth Line has just opened up a third way of getting to Heathrow by train and Luton Airport has just had a new rail link costing £260 million. The noble Lord, Lord McLoughlin, referred to the economic impact of the state of the railways in the north....

Carbon Emissions (Buildings) Bill (25 Nov 2022)

Holly Mumby-Croft: ...and The Broadway on Victoria Street—if you walk out of here and look to your right, Mr Deputy Speaker, before you get to M&S, you will see that building. They also include Victoria Square, the Heathrow Express tunnel—we probably made the steel for the rails in that tunnel as well, and if we did, it will be the finest steel in the world—Wembley Park and University College London...

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Chris Grayling: ...other Conservative Members support it. We really need to get on with it. Thirdly, a project that commands support on both sides of the House and that must drive future growth is the expansion of Heathrow airport. When we voted on it in this House four years ago, it had a majority of nearly 300. There was support from Labour and from the SNP—not the party, but individual Members. There...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (22 Nov 2022)

Jamie Halcro Johnston: We should be proud of our fishing industry and Governments should be working hard to fight for its interests. Scottish seafood has a global reach. I was speaking with representatives from Heathrow airport only last week about how significant air freight capacity has been to my region’s ability to export its produce across the world. It serves as a reminder that we have a highly...

Counsellors of State Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Nov 2022)

Lord Balfe: ...of Sussex decided to jet in? What if he saw the King’s diary and saw that the King was going to be on a state visit going from X to Y in, let us say, Australia, so he got on a plane, got off at Heathrow and said, “Hi, I’m here. I’m on the succession list”? We would get over all this if we had a system whereby the monarch just prescribed that “the Counsellors of State shall be...

Iran (16 Nov 2022)

Liam Fox: ...of Ukraine. We know Iran Air was used to transport those drones from Tehran to Russia. Why, as I have asked before, is Iran Air, an organ of the Iranian state, still operating daily flights out of Heathrow rather than being banned?

Britain’s Industrial Future (15 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: ..., perhaps most crucially of all, the foundations of our national security and economic resilience. It is deeply troubling that the Chinese state holds a 33% stake in Hinkley Point, a 10% stake in Heathrow airport and a 9% stake in Thames Water. The public are opposed to the road this Government are taking. They know we need a Britain that can stand more firmly on its own two feet, and they...

Night Flights: Impact on Communities ( 8 Nov 2022)

Richard Holden: at night and early in the morning. As I said, the recent research from York Aviation estimates that in 2019, flights during the night quota period had a total impact of over £8 billion. Heathrow airport accounts for a significant proportion of that value. However, we also recognise that the noise from aircraft at night brings significant negative impacts to the local community. As...

Housing (Built Environment Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Nov 2022)

Viscount Waverley: focal points for business development and employment by providing rapid delivery of products by air and access to international markets.

Airport Parking Charges ( 2 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Lord: ...person on to the bus—only to have to do it all again on the way back? That is not right. I was not aware that the airports were thinking of introducing this pre-covid. The letter that I got from Heathrow when I wrote on behalf of constituents placed the main emphasis on the financial shortfall over covid and said that the airport therefore needed to introduce the measures. I am surprised...

Scottish Parliament: Prestwick Airport (South Ayrshire Economy) ( 2 Nov 2022)

Siobhian Brown: ...the few airports in the world to make a profit during the pandemic, and it has played a major part in cargo distribution across the United Kingdom. With the Brexit chaos and the backlog of cargo at Heathrow, it was actually quicker to send cargo to Prestwick and then down to London than it was to get it out of Heathrow. Prestwick airport is also an integral part of the aerospace industry,...

Public Order Bill - Second Reading ( 1 Nov 2022)

Lord Coaker: ...Oil protesters who threw tomato soup were charged with criminal damage, 11 people were arrested for criminal damage at a dairy in the West Midlands, 80 people were arrested at an oil facility near Heathrow for aggravated trespass and 25 people were arrested in central London for obstructing the highway. There is example after example of arrests by our police service using existing laws....

Airspace Modernisation Strategy ( 1 Nov 2022)

Ruth Cadbury: ..., and I welcome the Minister to his new role. He says that airspace modernisation has a number of advantages, including for growth, but does he recognise that those of us with constituencies near Heathrow, including my hon. Friend the Member for Putney (Fleur Anderson) and me, will not see route changes because our constituents live under the locked-in approach paths to the airport?...

Business of the House (27 Oct 2022)

Fleur Anderson: ...we can still expect timely answers to letters and to written and oral questions from recent weeks? Specifically, on 14 October I raised concerns about the very noisy early-morning night flights to Heathrow, which regularly wake up my constituents from 4.30 am. The former Transport Minister, the hon. Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster), answered reassuringly that he would investigate. Can...
