Fossil Fuels: Lobbying (30 Jan 2024)

Caroline Lucas: ...point, I give credit to the hon. Member for Coventry South (Zarah Sultana) for going public about the food hamper sent to her by staff at Heathrow in the hope it would secure her support for their third runway. They obviously did not know her very well. Financial benefit cannot be divorced from conflict of interest or perceived conflict, It is worth noting that there is no requirement on...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] ( 7 Nov 2023)

Edward Davey: ...I have always rather admired the right hon. Gentleman, for many reasons. His speech today was extremely entertaining, but I have always liked the fact that he, like many on our Benches, opposed the third runway at Heathrow and that he was a constructive, if unfashionable, Conservative in his views on a constructive relationship with our European partners. But perhaps what makes him more at...

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

Treasury: HS2: Cost ( 5 Sep 2023)

Graham Stringer: ..., and one reason 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?

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

John Martin McDonnell: ...Airport Ltd, and he will inevitably meet that chief executive. When he does, will he take him through the costings of any road and rail infrastructure associated with the proposed development of a third runway? Heathrow has offered £2 billion to cover the cost. The Government’s airports commission calculated the cost at £5 billion, but we now believe that, because of the tunnelling...

Transport: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2023)

Mark Harper: ...likes to hear from me, so I will answer this question. He can then think of a way of insulting whatever I say in response. The point that my right hon. Friend was making is that any proposal for a third runway at Heathrow will be a private sector proposal from that airport and, as last time, we would expect it to be funded by the airport. He knows that, if it brings forward such a...

Public Order (12 Jun 2023)

John Martin McDonnell: ...views to their relevant elected representatives and vote as constituents in elections for Governments who will fulfil their wishes. That is what happened with my constituents in west London on the third runway issue, which we have been campaigning on since the late-1970s. David Cameron assured people that there would be no third runway, “no ifs, no buts”. Some of my constituents—I...

Heathrow Airport Expansion (24 May 2023)

Mike Kane: ...workers’ rights and environmental standards, and allowed us to build back better from a position of power, not weakness. On expansion, Labour has consistently said for a number of years that a third runway at Heathrow must meet our long-established tests. It must meet the criteria on air quality, noise and climate change, and it must be affordable and delivered in the best interests of...

Independent Review of Net Zero ( 9 Feb 2023)

Ruth Cadbury: ...the world. If only the Government had listened to that message over the past decade, the country might now be in a different position. On Heathrow expansion, for example, they have not ruled out a third runway, despite the undeniable climate impact of the project. On onshore wind, British businesses have been leading the way in developing the newest turbines, yet because of the decade-long...

Public Order Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (30 Jan 2023)

Lord Coaker: ...that simply does not make sense. I say this in jest: goodness only knows what the previous Prime Minister but one would have made of this. If noble Lords remember, he said, with respect to the third runway at Heathrow, that he was going to “lie down in front” of the first bulldozer. That would have been something: he would have been arrested for that; his own party would have passed...

Night Flights: Impact on Communities ( 8 Nov 2022)

Sarah Olney: ...’s constant mixed messaging and refusal to rule out Heathrow expansion is causing further anxiety for my constituents. Just four weeks ago, the former Prime Minister voiced her support for a third runway at Heathrow, having previously stated she would even support a fourth being built. That followed her predecessor, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson),...

Public Order Bill - Second Reading ( 1 Nov 2022)

Lord Coaker: ...last Prime Minister but one—I cannot keep count—Boris Johnson who himself said, about a major infrastructure project, that he would lie down in front of the bulldozer that sought to build the third runway at Heathrow. These are broad, sweeping and vaguely defined powers with low thresholds that we will need to debate in Committee. We have seen totally unacceptable actions by...

Public Order Bill: New Clause 7 - Power of Secretary of State to bring proceedings (18 Oct 2022)

John Martin McDonnell: ...? I will discuss specifically how the Bill will have a dramatic effect on my constituents. In my constituency there has been a 40-year campaign against Heathrow expansion, particularly against the third runway. According to the airport itself, 4,000 homes will be either demolished or rendered unliveable as a result of air and noise pollution. Ten thousand people will lose their homes....

Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Oct 2022)

Sarah Olney: For my Richmond Park constituents and communities across south-west London, from Wimbledon to Elmbridge, any expansion of Heathrow would be disastrous. A third runway would see over 6 million more tonnes of carbon pumped into the atmosphere every year, and 2 million households would be affected by increased noise levels. Last week, the Transport Secretary said that she supported Heathrow...

Public Bill Committee: Public Order Bill: Clause 3 - Obstruction etc of major transport works (14 Jun 2022)

Sarah Jones: What is the Minister’s view on the Prime Minister’s intention to lie in front of bulldozers at the start of the construction of the third runway at Heathrow?

Public Order Bill (23 May 2022)

Sarah Jones: .... This is a genuine debate, and it is the right one to have. We know that the Prime Minister values the right to protest, as he said that he would lie down in front of the bulldozers to stop a third runway at Heathrow airport. But some protests tip the balance in the wrong direction. Protest is not an unqualified right. Campaigners who block people from reaching relatives in hospital,...
