MP and Plain English Campaign back calls to extend Heathrow consultation

23.01.08

An MP and the Plain English Campaign have backed calls for an extension to the Heathrow Airport expansion consultation deadline.

Putney MP Justine Greening said: 'Heathrow is one of the safest airports in the world but [last weeks plane crash] clearly shows the innate risks associated with Heathrow being located so close to London. The Government must extend the public consultation in order to allow time for a full investigation to be carried out and results published into what went wrong.'

The group campaigning for simple use of the English has also backed the calls for an extension to the consultation. The Founding Director of the Plain English Campaign, Chrissie Maher, said: 'No ordinary person with an interest in the plans to expand Heathrow could be expected to read and understand [the consultation documents].'

'People must have a fair chance to understand the documents put before them otherwise they cannot tell you what they really think. We strongly support the call for it to be re-written in language which makes sense.'

The consultation is due to close on February 27. We would be very surprised if they extend it. Given the comments by Ruth Kelly as it was launched, some might suggest that the decisions have already been made.
