Terminal 5 And Department Of Transport
That this House is dismayed at the difference in the reply given to the honourable Member for Thurrock by the Minister of State for Transport on 17th March in respect of the Department's justification for the proposed widening of the M25 between junctions 12 and 15 and the evidence given to Mr Roy Vandermeer, the Inspector of the Inquiry into Heathrow Terminal 5, by Mr T Dockerty on 27th February 1997 when, following the Inspector asking if 'Terminal 5 depends not merely upon the spur but upon a widened M25' Mr Dockerty replied 'Yes, I think that is the Department's position, Sir, yes'; considers that it is now encumbent upon the Secretary of State to clarify both to the Inquiry and the honourable Member for Thurrock how these two apparently irreconcilable statements can be glibly given to a statutory inquiry and to Parliament; and concludes that this is further evidence of the Department's duplicity and doublespeak.
This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
