HC Deb 29 July 1997 vol 299 c208W
Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will undertake a review of the system of allocating runway slots. [11185]

Slot allocation at European Community airports is governed by EC regulation 95/93. We are currently awaiting proposals from the Commission for revision of the regulation, which will then be the subject of discussion in Transport Council.
