Mr. Hoban

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what discussions he has had with representatives of the insurance industry concerning the availability of insurance cover for the National Air Traffic Service. [61104]

Ruth Kelly

(holding answer 13 June 2002]: Third party war and terrorism insurance for National Air Traffic Services is available through the Government's Troika insurance scheme. The scheme is currently due to come to an end on 30 June 2002. Discussions are continuing with the insurance industry and in Europe on arrangements beyond that date, although no discussions have been held with National Air Traffic Services themselves.
