HC Deb 25 June 2002 vol 387 c766W
Mr. John Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what progress he has made on implementing the recommendations of the anthropometric study to update minimum aircraft seating standards commissioned by the Joint Aviation Authority. [63756]

Mr. Spellar

The Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) are still considering the recommendations contained in the anthropometric report. The UK Civil Aviation Authority has urged the JAA to reach an early decision on a common European standard for seat spacing.
