§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on his current consideration of the privatisation of the British Airports Authority; and whether he expects this privatisation to take place in 1985.
§ Mr. Ridley
A number of options for introducing private capital into the British Airports Authority are still being considered; none has been ruled out at this stage. Timing of any measure will be determined by the need for legislation.
