BTA General Election Manifesto 2019

Continuing our mission to promote the vital role of business travel and events to the UK economy, please see below our General Election Manifesto which will be presented to the Government and shared with the press.

BTA feels that commitments made to deliver improved capacity and connectivity throughout the transport network, a sustained programme of investment to make travel more environmentally sustainable, as well as other commitments to reform the rail network and modernise our airspace should be continued.  This means delivering High Speed 2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail, implementing the recommendations of the Williams Rail Review, deliver an expansion of Heathrow Airport that can benefit our regional airports which is underpinned by airspace modernisation and a reformed regulatory regime that improves the competitiveness.

Please feel free to share with colleagues, friends and business associates to raise the importance of our fantastic industry - Defining the future of business travel not tweaking the past.
