HC Deb 04 November 2003 vol 412 cc546-7W
Mr. Prisk

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment his Department has made of the cross-subsidy in favour of Stansted Airport. [135629]

Mr. McNulty

Stansted is a designated airport subject to price cap regulation under the 1986 Airports Act. As such, the issue of cross-subsidy in favour of Stansted was considered by the CAA as part of its price cap review and decisions on BAA's London airports, published in February 2003. The Government will set out their policy on this issue in the Air Transport White Paper.
