HC Deb 19 May 1986 vol 98 c27W
46. Sir Fergus Montgomery

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he is yet in a position to make a statement on the recent judgment of the European Court of Justice about arrangements for setting European air fares.

Mr. Michael Spicer

The recent ECJ judgment about European air fares confirms the Government's view that air transport, like other sectors, is subject to the competition rules of the treaty of Rome. Real competition should lead to lower air fares and the judgment strengthens our campaign for the introduction of real competition into European air services.
