asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has had the opportunity to study the Scottish Development Agency report on Scottish Lowland Airways; and if he will make a statement.
My right hon. Friend has noted the contents of the report although it has not been formally submitted to him. The Government's policy remains as previously stated by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade, namely, that the Scottish Lowland airports should continue to fulfil their present role as complements to each other.
