§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, following the Monopolies and Mergers Commission report on the national air traffic services part of the Civil Aviation Authority, he will conduct an efficiency audit of the Civil Aviation Authority.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
In its recent study of part of the Civil Aviation Authority's national air traffic services, the Monopolies and Mergers Commission investigated whether the authority could improve its efficiency and thereby reduce its costs. It would not be sensible to commission further studies of this type until the authority has had an opportunity to respond to and follow up the MMC's recommendations.
