AIR TRANSPORT AGREEMENTS (14663/02)
Letter from the Chairman to the Minister
for Transport, the Rt Hon John Spellar
Thank you for your Explanatory Memorandum dated
11 December 2002 which Sub-Committee B considered at its meeting
on 13 January 2003.
We think that the effects of the Court's judgments
need to be examined at greater length. Accordingly, we have decided
to conduct an inquiry into the wider implications of the ECJ judgments
on air transport policy.
We note the position that your Department has
adopted, and we would wish to explore this further in the course
of our inquiry. Under the circumstances, the Scrutiny reserve
on this document is maintained until the inquiry concludes.
