Transport and Aviation

As the Green MEP for the South East, Keith will oppose airport expansion across the region and defend EU laws designed to protect the environment from overdevelopment. He challenges the massive government subsidies gifted to the aviation industry, and campaigns for cheaper, more efficient public transport. Keith sits on the Committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN), a role which will also allow him to take a lead on developing the South East’s huge potential for green tourism.
