Boris Johnson Admits He's Against Tories' Heathrow Policy
19 May 2017, 14:20
Boris Johnson has told LBC he is against the Conservative policy on Heathrow.
The Tory manifesto says: "We will continue with the expansion of Heathrow Airport."
But the Foreign Secretary, who was solidly anti-Heathrow expansion during his time as Mayor of London, insists that his position hasn't changed.
He told LBC: "The position is the one I was arguing as Mayor and as Foreign Secretary. That remains unchanged.
"I think it is the wrong solution and I think particularly the noise and the vehicular and air pollution difficulties will be very difficult indeed."
LBC's Political Editor Theo Usherwood then asked him: "Has Theresa May got it wrong?"
But Mr Johnson was whisked away before he could answer.
