Mark Reckless (Rochester and Strood) (Con): We heard yesterday very little support for the Thames estuary airport proposition, but one proposal has been floated, with very little detail to it, by Lord Foster, which would cost at least £50 billion. He is looking to include a bridge, a barrage and various other things. Can my hon. Friend confirm that that is an absolutely preposterous proposal?
Jackie Doyle-Price: I am on record as describing that proposal as pie in the sky, and I have not seen anything to change that opinion.
