The Government is clear that the construction of the Northwest Runway at Heathrow will be financed entirely by the private sector. Should the Airports National Policy Statement not be approved by Parliament, there would be no financial liability on the Government.

There is no agreement in place between HAL and the Department that gives rise to a right to claim for damages, losses, liabilities, costs and/or expenses or any other relief.
