I resigned from the Government in June 2018 to vote against the proposed expansion of Heathrow Airport. The proposals will have a negative impact on my constituents for three main reasons:
- It will damage our precious urban environment
- A large hub airport is not in the national interest
- Night flights are a wholly unnecessary stain on the liveability of London, including Chelsea and Fulham.
As a result, I urge you to sign my petition to stop night flights and the Third Runway:
"We, the undersigned constituents of Chelsea & Fulham, regret the decision to give the go-ahead for the Third Runway at Heathrow; we call on the decision to be revoked and further call for the abolition of all night flights (those before 6am) into the airport."
