§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he has had discussions with the Civil Aviation Bureau in the USA on the simplification of trans-Atlantic air fares structure; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
Discussions about a simplification of the structure of trans-Atlantic air fares have been held between the Civil Aviation Authority and the US Civil Aeronautics Board. Proposals for simpler fares structures have also been put forward by some airlines. However, neither the authorities nor the airlines concerned have yet reached agreement.
