To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the future of co-ordination of research effort in matters of flight safety.

In the United Kingdom the Civil Aviation Authority is responsible for co-ordinating research on civil flight safety. The machinery for this co-ordination is being reviewed, so as both to increase managerial accountability within the authority and to obtain additional advice from outside.Research on flight safety in Europe is co-ordinated as appropriate through the joint aviation authorities or Eurocontrol. I expect to see more extensive co-ordination of research in this field in the years ahead.
