Junior UK trade minister resigns over plans to expand Heathrow airport

LONDON, June 21 (Reuters) - A British trade minister said on Thursday he will resign from the government and vote next week against its plans to build a third runway at London’s Heathrow Airport.

“I wrote to the PM earlier this week on how I will honour these 2017 General Election pledges to the people of Chelsea & Fulham and vote against the Heathrow 3rd runway on Monday,” Greg Hands said on his Twitter page. (Reporting By Andrew MacAskill; editing by Stephen Addison)
