HC Deb 17 September 2003 vol 410 c759W
Mr. Andrew Turner

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer of 9 September 2003, ref 127778, which(a) Minister and (b) devolved Administration is responsible for (i) ferry services and (ii) air services between (A) England and Northern Ireland, (B) Wales and Northern Ireland, (C) Scotland and Northern Ireland and (D) Scotland and Wales. [130288]

Mr. McNulty

[holding answer 16 September 2003.]Ferry and air services between different parts of the UK are generally reserved matters, and the Secretary of State for Transport has policy responsibility. Explicit provision was made last year for the devolved Administrations in Scotland and Northern Ireland to take responsibility for financial support for a possible ferry service between Campbeltown and Ballycastle.
