Answer for London City Airport

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The decision to drop the previous Mayor's objection to the airport was based solely on the merits of the Compulsory Purchase Case and, the additional information provided by London City Airport in relation to the expansion and the requirement for the GLAP land. It was not influenced by external projects.
