asked Her Majesty's Government:Why only Article 6 of the recent United Kingdom-Italy Air Services Agreement (Cmnd. 6873) is to apply to non-scheduled air services, having regard to the fact that Italy has not ratified the Multilateral Agreement on the Commercial Rights of Non-Scheduled Air Services in Europe.

The application of Article 6 of the Agreement to nonscheduled air services was not designed to reflect Her Majesty's Government's policies regarding the operation of nonscheduled services within Europe, but was agreed as an exceptional and separate measure at the request of the Italian authorities to conform with their national procedures. Similar considerations do not apply in the case of the other articles of the Agreement.
