Greening on Johnson over Heathrow expansion vote

There was "very little focus" on the opposition to Heathrow Airport expansion due to a "focus on the Boris pantomime", says Justine Greening.

The former education secretary said the foreign secretary should have been at Monday's vote and Greg Hands was right to stand down - but that the government should have a allowed a free vote over the "not party political" issue.

Asked if she would have resigned from the cabinet over, the Putney MP told Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn: "Yes, absolutely."
