Whether they have had discussions with the chairman of the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment concerning the attendance of representatives from the Global Air Quality Executive at the committee's meetings. [HL1945]

There have been no discussions between the Government and the chair of the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food Consumer Products and the Environment (COT) regarding the attendance of representatives of the Global Cabin Air Quality Executive (GCAQE) at the committee's meetings. The meetings have been fully attended by observers with direct interests and who could provide additional expertise to the COT consideration. The COT secretariat had been advised that GCAQE was not a recognised union representing pilots.
