Following the High Court Ruling against the Labour Government’s decision to build a third runway at Heathrow, Theresa Villiers, Shadow Transport Secretary, said:
"Labour's flagship transport policy is in complete disarray. This judgement is a damning indictment of Labour's wholly misguided support for a third runway. It is proof that they cannot be trusted to safeguard our environment and that the whole handling of this hugely important issue has been riddled with incompetence and duplicity. They must drop their support for a third runway now.
“There will be a clear choice at the general election between five more years of Gordon Brown and his exhausted Labour Government or change with the Conservatives who will stop this runway from being built. Today’s news shows that the Conservatives made the right judgement and Labour got it wrong.”
