Mr. Woolmer

asked the Minister for Trade if he has yet replied to British Airways upon its proposals put to him regarding the capital reconstruction of that airline; and if he will make a statement.

The Government have informed British Airways that they are aware of the state of its finances and is considering appropriate measures. They have not yet accepted any commitment to undertake a capital reconstruction of the airline.
