East Midlands Airport: Radio Frequencies

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

(274094)

These are matters for the Office of Communication (Ofcom), the independent regulator for the UK communications industry, and I understand that Ofcom is explicitly considering the impact on East Midlands airport (as well as on others) and expects to publish a revised set of proposals, including impact assessment, in June.
