§ Mr. Tyler
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to his answer of 9 February 2004,Official Report, column 1241W, on Ryanair Decision, when he expects to receive the full text of the European Commission's decision on the case of Ryanair at Charleroi Airport; and if he will make a statement on its implications for regional airports in the UK. 
§ Mr. McNulty
The European Commission will publish its Decision on Ryanair once the parties to the case have had the opportunity to consider it. We do not know how long that will take. We will need to see the full Decision before we can make a proper assessment of the implications, if any, for UK aviation.
