May I first welcome your comments, Mr Mayor, on the voles at Heathrow and the danger that they and other native species face across London - and, indeed, across the country - and your implied, if not expressed, support for hunting to eradicate wild mink, which no doubt the Greens and their compatriots have let loose. [Laughter.]
Darren Johnson: We completely oppose the release of mink from those farms, and our statements are on record.
Richard Barnes: Would you allow us to hunt them to get rid of them?
I am not surprised by your comment, Mr Mayor, about tax on air fuel, but, given the state of the air economy at the moment, I am surprised by your timing. Airport capacity is dictated by two things - first, the ability to handle passengers, and people's desire and willingness to fly. Terminal 5, I understand, is aimed at handling the passenger capacity. The other determinant of airport capacity is a runway. We have heard British Airways argue vociferously over the summer for a third runway at Heathrow. Can you express your own view, bearing in mind your planning responsibilities, on a third runway in London, and would you support those of us who oppose a third runway at Heathrow and would rather direct it elsewhere around the capital?
