The Government had hoped to announce a decision on airports capacity this summer. Any announcement on airports capacity would have to be made with the House in session and we cannot foresee an announcement until at least October.

The Government is committed to delivering the important infrastructure projects it has set out, including delivering runway capacity on the timetable set out by the Airports Commission’s report.
