Mark Reckless, MP for Rochester and Strood, has condemned the proposals unveiled today by Lord Foster to build a new ‘Thames Hub’ airport on the Hoo Peninsula.
Speaking on BBC’s Radio Kent, Mark described Lord Foster’s pie in the sky proposal as “completely unacceptable and incredible”, citing the enormous cost involved and the absolutely devastating impact the proposal would have on the local environment.
“This government has always been clear it is opposed to this plan or anything like it. The fact that a few people in the private sector who would like to get vast amounts of money from leading something like this keep proposing it does not mean that it is a serious proposal. Once again I say it is pie in the sky, completely unacceptable and incredible.”
