HC Deb 19 April 1994 vol 241 cc441-2W
Mr. Day

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) whether the recently published joint National Air Traffic Service and International Air Transport Association recommendation leaflet concerning runway occupancy times and the need for pilots of landing aircraft to ensure expeditious clearance of the runway has been approved by the safety regulation group of the regulatory authority; and whether the associated air traffic procedures have been approved by the Civil Aviation Authority's air traffic control standards department;

(2) what are the reasons for establishing a runway hourly movement monitor to compare actual movement rates achieved with the declared runway capacity and for the requirement of air traffic controllers at Manchester to submit to an internal management investigation if they fail to achieve the declared hourly movement rate.

Mr. Norris

[holding answer 18 April 1994]: As these two questions concern matters that are within the responsibility of the Civil Aviation Authority, I am asking the chairman of the CAA to write to the hon. Member.

Forward to
