§ Mr. Welsh
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the cost to the Exchequer of exempting Aberdeen from air passenger duty. 
§ Mr. Timms
Based on existing passenger numbers and duty rates, exempting flights departing from Aberdeen from air passenger duty would cost approximately £10 million in a full year. Also exempting flights from other UK airports to Aberdeen would approximately cost a further £5 million.
