UK air transport conference calls for compensation for residents affected by expansion plans.
During a conference on the future development of UK air transport, the Transport Minister John Spellar promised that residents most affected by airport expansion plans would receive compensation.
Spellar also stated that aircraft and aircraft engine manufacturers may be required to accelerate the delivery of noise reduction targets, while aviation should "pay its way" and cover the costs inflicted on the environment.
The conference followed the end of the public consultation into the government's airport expansion plans. A firm decision on the plans is expected in 2003, reported PA News.
