On 9 and 10 July 2013, the Airports Commission held public evidence sessions in Manchester and London. The sessions were chaired by Sir Howard Davies who was joined on the panel by the other Commissioners.
The sessions were focused on the Commission’s work to date assessing the nature, scale and timing of the UK’s aviation needs, rather than to discuss any specific potential locations for new aviation capacity. Each session was structured as follows:
Part 1. Witnesses invited by the Commission gave a presentation setting out their key arguments and evidence.
Part 2. Witnesses were questioned by the Commissioners.
Part 3. Stakeholders in the public gallery were invited to make statements.
Notes of the sessions are attached above.
