Richmond upon Thames LBC claims rumours the government is to accept expansion at Heathrow airport are unfounded.
Katie Gent (Lib Dem), chair of the council's environment committee said:
'The latest unsubstantiated leak is another in a long line of leaks to the media aimed at conditioning us to the eventual acceptance of this enormous expansion.'
Plans to extend Terminal 5 were due to be broadcast on The Money Programme on BBC2 this week.
The airport handles around 64 million passengers a year and the council says any increase in traffic would be unbearable.
