Diane Abbott (Hackney North and Stoke Newington) (Lab): 
The Davies commission report will clearly repay close study. The economic benefits of the third runway at Heathrow are understood, but does the Secretary of State appreciate that for millions of people, including millions of Londoners, the economic benefits are outweighed by the clear environmental disbenefits, such as carbon emissions, noise, and, above all, air pollution?

There is no easy answer, which is slightly different from what was said from the Opposition Dispatch Box at the start of the statement.
