HC Deb 08 March 2004 vol 418 cc1235-6W
Mr. Paul Marsden

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list in descending order airlines using British airports by their air safety records. [159313]

Mr. McNulty

The safety of UK airlines is overseen by the Civil Aviation Authority to a high standard. Foreign airlines operating to the United Kingdom are required to be operated in accordance with the minimum safety standards established by the International Civil Aviation Organisation. They are regulated by aviation authorities of their home states.
