• Heathrow third runway

    The Government promised that the expansion of Heathrow airport would increase connectivity to airports at Liverpool John Lennon and Manchester, and bring associated opportunities for jobs, investment and business in places like St Helens.
    The uncertainty around the third runway is a cause of concern for political and business leaders in our region. I called on Transport Ministers to provide clarity over Heathrow’s future, and commit to delivering on the promise of growth for communities across the North West.
