COURT OF APPEAL AGREES TO HEAR ANOTHER STANSTED APPEAL
The long running saga over the future ownership of Stansted Airport is set to continue for several more months, at least, following an announcement by the Court of Appeal today that it is prepared to hear another appeal from BAA. This is despite the fact that BAA's last appeal was dismissed on all five grounds.
Stop Stansted Expansion's Economics Adviser Brian Ross commented: "Like King Canute, BAA is fighting a battle which it must know it cannot win."
NOTE TO EDITORS
Today's announcement by BAA can be seen here.
The legal battle has already lasted over three years and was preceded by three years of investigation into BAA by the OFT and the Competition Commission.
