Two-thirds of public support Heathrow expansion, says new ComRes poll

A new poll by ComRes claims 69% of the public think a third Heathrow runway shows that Britain is “open for business” following Brexit.

The results from the market research company come just a week after the UK government published the National Policy Statement on the expansion, kicking off the planning process and public consultation.

The poll also showed that most of the 2,003 respondents believe an extra runway will create trading opportunities and allow UK businesses to export more goods and services around the world.

John Holland-Kaye, Heathrow CEO, said, “An expanded Heathrow will create new routes and trade destinations to deliver a global Britain.

“The launch of the UK government’s National Policy Statement consultation is a key milestone in our plans, and we look forward to working with our local communities, airlines and the government to ensure Heathrow expansion is affordable, sustainable and benefits all of Britain.”

The results follow that of another ComRes poll showing 74% of 130 surveyed MPs back the move.
