Election candidates

What has surprised us during the General Election campaign is the level of previously silent opposition there is to a third runway at Heathrow amongst key candidates.

Campaigners opposed to a third runway attended over 20 ‘hustings’ meeting during the General Election Campaign.  I was at half a dozen of them. We also wrote to the key candidates. 

This is obviously only an estimate but on the basis of the responses campaigners received our best guess is this:

In the next Parliament there could be: 

  • 36 London MPs opposed to a third runway; 
  • 18 in favour; 
  • 19 whose views are unclear.
