Aviation industry needs a reality check - Baker


“Why should everyone else suffer just so aviation can stay the same?" said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary.

Commenting on the warning from the Climate Change Committee that the UK will have to cut emissions by 90% by 2050 so that the aviation industry can continue to grow, Norman Baker said:

“This is a vindication of what the Liberal Democrats have been saying for a long time. The expansion of Heathrow and other airports in the South East is incompatible with attempts to cut carbon emissions.

“Why should everyone else suffer just so aviation can stay the same? It’s time the airline industry took a reality check.”
