HC Deb 24 February 1998 vol 307 c140W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what assessment he has made of the safety of aircraft operated by Olympic Airways; and if the CAA have implemented increased safety oversight checks in response to press reports in the Greek media. [31206]

Ms Glenda Jackson

Safety oversight of Olympic Airways is the responsibility of the Greek Civil Aviation Authority. We are not aware of any reports in the Greek media or elsewhere which suggest that either the Greek CAA or Olympic Airways are not complying with the minimum safety standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
