Syed Kamall calls for a referendum on London’s next runway

Syed Kamall, the Conservative member of the European Parliament for London and Mayoral hopeful has spoken on the latest review by the Airports Commission. 

Mr Kamall has called for the city of London to hold a referendum on the question of where the country should build it’s next runway.

In the Labour hustings in August, Tooting MP, and Labour candidate Sadiq Khan said that pollution fears make him change his mind over expanding Heathrow Airport and warned air quality in the capital was getting as bad as the 1950s.

 

The hustings debate was chaired by the Evening Standard’s Editor, Sarah Sands, held at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington. 

 The London Mayoral candidates that took part were; Zac Goldsmith the Conservative MP for Richmond Park, Stephen Greenhalgh the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Syed Kamall the Conservative member of the European Parliament for London, and Andrew Boff, a London Assembly Member.
