PUBLISHED: 14:04 24 September 2012
The Liberal Democrats have voted against plans for a Thames Estuary airport as well as a third runway at Heathrow.
At the party’s conference, MP Julian Huppert, chairman of the party’s transport committee, said: “The motion which [we] have adopted today strikes the right balance for Britain.
“It puts a stop to expansion at Heathrow. It puts an end to the bonkers idea of Boris Island.
“And it says ‘no’ to a South East obsessed aviation policy.”
