§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will initiate discussions with the British Airways International Company about the implications for Southend airport of the refusal of a nationalised German company to operate a bus link from Ostend to Frankfurt which is an integral part of a major regular service from London to Frankfurt; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
No. The implications of this decision are a commercial matter for those concerned.
