Airports: Security

Volume 492: debated on Friday 8 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent assessment he has made of the effect of the introduction of charges for priority security checks on the level of security at UK airports. (273192)

The introduction of charges for priority security checks is a decision for individual airports and airlines to make. Such a decision will not impact on the level of security in place at UK airports. The required security standards set by the Department for Transport apply equally to all passengers.
