asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement on the attempt to hijack a British Airways aircraft on 7th January.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade is making a statement after Questions today on those aspects of the incident which concern aviation security. A man has been charged, and it would not be proper for me to comment on matters which are sub judice. All the authorities concerned with handling incidents of this kind are examining the lessons to be learned.
