David Cameron has been accused of letting down British exporters and ducking and diving for political convenience by planning to delay a final decision on whether to press ahead with the expansion of Heathrow airport.
No 10 said there would be a clear decision this week, but declined to say whether this would be the final choice to go ahead.
Faced with the possible resignation of Zac Goldsmith, the MP and Conservative candidate for London mayor who opposes Heathrow’s expansion, Cameron appears to have decided to defer a final irreversible decision until after next May’s mayoral elections.
