HC Deb 08 November 1977 vol 938 cc94-5W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Trade which of the Governments sharing responsibility for the Eurocontrol air traffic system are currently supporting the United Kingdom Government's policy of 100 per cent. recovery of costs from users and which are unwilling to support that policy; and what reasons have been put forward for such unwillingness.

Mr. Clinton Davis

I cannot answer for other Governments. Under the convention, all matters affecting the recovery of costs are decided unanimously; and it has been agreed that the rate of recovery will rise to 75 per cent. on 1st April 1978. It remains our policy to press for full recovery at the earliest possible date.
