HC Deb 20 April 2004 vol 420 c452W
Mr. Leigh

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment he has made of progress by National Air Traffic Services in securing investment to expand air traffic control capacity, with particular reference to restarting work on the new control center in Prestwick. [166178]

Mr. Darling

The New Prestwick Air Traffic Control center is an integral part of NATS operations. It will handle operations over the eastern half of the North Atlantic, the northern half of the UK and much of the North Sea. Work on the new center at Prestwick is due to start later this year.
