Gatwick or Heathrow? Decision expected this week

We should find out this week which airport will be given the green light to build another runway.

A 10-strong cabinet subcommittee is expected to meet this week to decide whether Heathrow or Gatwick will given permission, the Sunday Times reports.

Based on the findings of the Airports Commission, it is widely expected that Heathrow will be announced as the Government’s choice. Although, whichever airport is nominated, it is unlikely to be a straight forward process from there with planning and legal battles are expected to continue for many years.
