HC Deb 08 July 1996 vol 281 c66W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer of 24 June,Official Report, column 34, if he will list the safety reasons that have resulted in the grounding of the aircraft operated by Air Operations of Europe. [35273]

Mr. Norris

I am advised that the Civil Aviation Authority issued a direction, under the Air Navigation Order 1989, to prevent this aircraft from flying because its registration documents, certificate of airworthiness and licences of flight crew appeared to have been issued illegally.
