HC Deb 27 October 2003 vol 412 c1WS
Norman Lamb

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much was paid by his Department in respect of landing fees for British military aircraft using commercial airfields(a) in each of the last three years and (b) so far in 2003, broken down by airfield. [133624]

Mr. Ingram

Information on landing fees is not held by airfield, and cannot be provided in this format. Figures are available for the United Kingdom and overseas, by budget area, but these figures include handling charges and associated costs (e.g. parking, training, transport and navigation). In some cases the figures are not available from current records and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
