The Secretary of State has regular discussions on a variety of matters with HM Treasury.

In line with the 2013 Aviation Policy Framework, and the proposed Airports National Policy Statement, where a surface transport scheme is not solely required to deliver airport capacity and has a wider range of beneficiaries, the Government, along with relevant stakeholders, will consider the need for a public funding contribution alongside an appropriate contribution from the airport on a case by case basis.
