Transport Secretary Justine Greening during the official opening of the new terminal building at London Southend Airport. She said it was an example of how regional airports can contribute towards economic growth, at a time of growing debate over the need for a new hub in the London area. "The current debate on the future of aviation in our country as a whole has focused on hubs such as Heathrow and Gatwick. Our regional airports have an absolutely vital part to play in making sure the aviation sector remains competitive and continues to serve businesses and the community.''
