To ask the Secretary of State for Transport to what extent the recommendations contained in the Second Report of the Transport Committee on the privatisation of National Air Traffic Services (HC 36) that the Safety Regulation Group's Air Traffic Services Standards Department should be transferred to a body separate from the Civil Aviation Authority has been accepted by his Department; what progress has been made towards the implementation of this recommendation; and if he will make a statement.
