HC Deb 06 April 1987 vol 114 c42W
18. Mr. Greg Knight

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the meeting of the European Community Transport Ministers on 23 and 24 March.

Mr. Moore

Further useful progress was made on aviation. There is now unanimous agreement that unnecessarily restrictive fare conditions should be dropped. The Council also discussed a number of inland transport issues including road haulage liberalisation and transport infrastructure. I gave a full account of the outcome of the Council in reply to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Altrincham and Sale (Sir F. Montgomery) on 27 March.
