To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how many meetings Ministers have had with(a) officials and (b) others regarding the draft Aeroplane Noise (Amendment) Regulations 1999. [91052]

Ms Glenda Jackson

[holding answer 14 July 1999]: None. The draft Aeroplane Noise (Amendment) Regulations are simply an administrative measure. They align UK legislation with the latest EU amendment by deleting 11 aeroplanes which no longer qualify for exemption.
