Answered By: 
The Mayor

Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London):  Yes.

Roger Evans AM:  ‑‑ which will cause huge noise and pollution problems for east London and that you will seek to ensure that your successor opposes it as well?

Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London):  Yes, of course.  What is sauce for the goose has to be sauce for the gander.  It is totally unfair on the people of east London to be subjected to more noise and more pollution from aircraft while we protect the people of west London.  It is complete nonsense.
