Business community will be surprised by spaceport commitment but no airport decision

On the absence of a commitment in the Queen's Speech to a new runway in London and the South East, Let Britain Fly said:

The business community will be surprised that the Queen’s speech included a commitment to build a new spaceport, but there was no commitment to make a final decision on the location of a new runway for more conventional aircraft. Such a decision is needed not only to support our world-leading aerospace and aviation sector, but is vital for the country’s long-term prosperity. We urge the government to make a final decision by the summer recess.
