Select Committee on Transport Minutes of Evidence


Examination of Witnesses (Question 360)

MR ROGER WILSHIRE, MR ANDREW CAHN, MR MICHAEL O'LEARY, MR RICHARD CHURCHILL-COLEMAN AND MR BARRY HUMPHREYS

18 JANUARY 2006

  Q360  Chairman: We know that. Do you think that on the question of a change of flight paths there is sufficient account taken of environmental issues?

  Mr Cahn: Yes I do. I think environmental issues are taken very seriously, not least by BA, which is the industry leader in dealing with environmental issues.

  Mr Wilshire: We believe the CAA do and have to take environmental issues into consideration. In this area they are advised by the DfT. I think it is very important that the DfT advice is robust on these matters. We would support that because we believe that aviation development and growth is possible in a sustainable way.

  Chairman: Gentlemen, you have been very instructive. Thank you very much for coming.
