Lord Grenfell

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress has been made in reviewing the circumstances of the incident on board flight 13A 2069 on 29 December 2000 when a mentally disturbed passenger seized the aircraft controls. [HL4241]

Lord Falconer of Thoroton

The Civil Aviation Authority has reported on the outcome of its review of the incident on 29 December 2000 and we placed in the Libraries of both Houses a report of the authority's findings. We are satisfied that the security and safety lessons from the incident for the travelling public have already been fully taken into account in the actions taken since the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.
