Airports expansion decision “next week”


Airports expansion decision “next week”

A decision on airport expansion in England will be made next week, with ministers allowed to express their own views, Downing Street said.

Under a special arrangement, ministers opposed to the decision will be allowed to voice their “personal views” for a limited period.

The decision will be made by the Cabinet sub-committee on airports.

It will finally reveal whether the government backs a new runway at either Heathrow or Gatwick airports.
