Businesses need clarity and commitment as Airports Commission consultation closes, says KPMG

Posted 8 August 2014 · Add Comment

James Stamp, KPMG's head of transport, comments as Airports Commission consultation closes on its inner Thames estuary study outputs.

 

James Stamp said:  “We welcome the progress being made by the Airports Commission. However, we believe that the debate about whether new capacity is needed has been resolved; the question that needs to be answered now is, where and when?

“UK PLC will only benefit from the work of the Commission if action is taken, and this will require political will. A clear and unambiguous commitment from politicians, who aspire to be in power following the next general election, will benefit everyone: providing clarity, removing uncertainty, and allowing the UK to defend and grow its competitive position.‎”
