HC Deb 10 July 2003 vol 408 c879W
Mr. Ben Chapman

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what guidance he gives to the Civil Aviation Authority regarding air traffic control delays. [124336]

Mr. McNulty

None. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) exercises its role as the independent regulator for National Air Traffic Services Ltd. through the licence issued to that company; one of the conditions of which is a delay term. The CAA sets this delay term taking into account consultation with interested parties and its duties and objectives under the Transport Act 2000.
