Mr. Heathcoat-Amory: No, I am sorry, but I want to try to answer my hon. Friend the Member for Wellingborough (Sir P. Fry), who asked whether air transport was, in principle, dealt with differently from surface transport. My hon. Friend would agree that a journey that goes from A to B has elements of public transport about it, because passengers could be transported not for pleasure but for the genuine motive of being transported from one place to another. In cases of pleasure flights round the Bay of Biscay in Concorde or whatever, that clearly cannot--

It being one and a half hours after the commencement of proceedings on the motion, Mr. Deputy Speaker-- put the Question, pursuant to Order [16 December] .

Question agreed to .

Resolved ,

That the Value Added Tax (Buildings and Land) Order 1994 (S.I., 1994, No.3013), dated 29th November 1994, a copy of which was laid before this House on 29th November, be approved.
