I am writing in response to the letter (January 22, Consequences of third runway) from Councillor Marilyn Ashton condemming the third runway (at Heathrow).
I, like Marilyn and millions of others, am furious that the Government can destroy our environment so detrimentally with no effect on the people in the local villages whose homes will be destroyed.
I can, however, give Marilyn and all your readers some very good news that I have it in writing from the Shadow Transport Minister Theresa Villiers that if the Conservatives win the forthcoming General Election the project will be scrapped.
In other words, if you don't want your environment around Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Ealing areas ruined, you can be assured that a vote for the Conservatives will put a complete halt to the project.
Once again, the two Labour MPs for Harrow have voted to ruin our environment in a major way compared to the Conservatives, who will offer a new environmentally-clean, fast modern railway between the major cities of the UK.
