Now, about one-third of my business is in other countries. I minimise my travel, but I still have to visit 6-10 countries each year. It simply is not credible to suggest that I have the time to do that by boat, rail, bus, car. (I do travel by rail for the vast majority of my work in the UK.)
No air - no business. No business - no jobs in Sheffield.
The Greens simply have no understanding of how much of Sheffield's economy is based on exports and which requires air travel to deliver.
