#UKPoli: Caroline Russell responds to Court of Appeal decision on Heathrow third runway. #UKPolitics

27 February 2020

Green Party transport spokesperson Caroline Russell, who was at the court for the ruling, said: 

“This decision shows business as usual has no place in a climate emergency. Of course we cannot expand aviation in the middle of a climate crisis.

“We are pleased the courts have upheld the will of Parliament on the need to tackle the climate emergency.

“It’s fantastic this is the first time in the world the Paris Agreement has been used as the basis for a ruling. 

“We hope it opens the door for more challenges to allow the people to take power back from big business and protect our planet.

“Greens across the country will continue to fight off expansion at airports across the country.”
