asked the Minister for Trade what were the contents of the report by the controller of the national air traffic services into allegations about air traffic operations at Aberdeen airport.

I have received a very full report from the controller of the national air traffic services who has conducted a special review into air traffic control around Aberdeen and in the adjoining North Sea airspace.The national air traffic services consider that they can continue to cope with the traffic demand given the customary spirit of compromise which the different airspace users have developed in the course of long established consultative processes, and the new arrangements and support facilities which are in train.I am arranging for a copy of this report to be placed in the Library.
