A suggested response:
The omission of both the Department of Health and DEFRA from the list of organisations to be consulted by the Department of Transport skews any argument put forward for airport expansion anywhere in the UK; the effects on people’s health and the environment in which we all live are of paramount importance and must be fully considered alongside any financial benefits. Both Departments should be included in aviation strategy policy as a matter of urgency.
