HC Deb 10 May 2001 vol 368 c345W
Mr. Gill

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with Spain regarding the European Union's single sky proposals; and if he will make a statement. [159580]

Mr. Vaz

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary last discussed the matter with his Spanish counterpart on 9 April. The Government fully support the EU single sky initiative, which should benefit UK industry and consumers. The Stockholm European Council on 23–24 March called for progress on this issue before the next European Council in Gothenburg on 15–16 June.
