National Policy Statements: Airports

The following is an extract from the debate on National Policy Statement: Airports on 25 June 2018.

The Government are committed to protecting and expanding these domestic routes, increasing them from eight to at least 14, and 15% of them will serve domestic flights to deliver even more opportunities for greater connectivity across the UK, benefiting passengers and businesses. [Official Report, 25 June 2018, Vol. 643, c. 718.]

Letter of correction from Jesse Norman:

An error has been identified in my winding-up speech in the National Policy Statement: Airports debate.

The correct statement should have been:

The Government are committed to protecting and expanding these domestic routes, increasing them from eight to at least 14, and about 15% of new slots will serve domestic flights to deliver even more opportunities for greater connectivity across the UK, benefiting passengers and businesses.
