SCC Comment on Heathrow Expansion


5th June 2018

Commenting on the publication of the Government's Airports National Policy Statement, Liz Cameron OBE, Director & Chief Executive, Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

"Now is the time for Parliament to demonstrate that the UK is open for business.

"Expanding UK's aviation capacity by giving the thumbs up for Heathrow's third runway is critical in boosting our position in the global economy, and will provide much-needed confidence to international investors and our trading allies.

"Scotland's business community will look to MPs to 'green light' this vital infrastructure project, unlocking economic growth and jobs creation in Scotland and the UK."
