§ Mr. Alfred Morris
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration his Department has given to the report entitled "Airport Security: the Experience of Manchester Airport", a copy of which has been sent to him; what action he will be taking; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We received a copy of the report from the hon. Member on 7 April. It has been read with interest. The report was prepared by the TGWU branch at Manchester airport. The Union's representative on the National Aviation Security Committee (NASC) will be asked whether the union as a whole endorses the recommendations made by its Manchester branch, and if so whether, as a result, it intends to put forward proposals for consideration by the National Aviation Security Committee.
