asked the Secretary of State for Transport what efforts are being made, following the publication of Cmnd. 9542, "Airports Policy", to liberalise regulations and increase the scope for new services for Northern Ireland.

We are also actively seeking more liberal arrangements for international air services, particularly in Europe, from which it could benefit.
