asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the reply by Lord Bassam of Brighton on 14 March (Official Report, col. 736), what progress they have made with their support for the position of Morocco under its open skies treaty with the European Union. [HL3125]
The Government support the EU-Morocco aviation agreement signed on 12 December 2006. We continue to look carefully at this issue and will take it into account as appropriate in considering the future structure of air passenger duty as part of the Budget process.
