Letters – The government must decide quickly on airport expansion

Dear Editor,

The Airport Commission has reported back; a new runway at either Heathrow or Gatwick could create up to 77,000 jobs and £147 billion for the UK economy.  The decision will have a significant knock-on effect to the economy of the entire UK, and it will impact upon us here in the North East of England.  I would urge the government to now take a decision quickly on a matter which they should have resolved years ago.

We’re all used to flights being delayed; this time it’s not a flight but an entire runway running a long way behind schedule!
