I hear what the Minister is saying. However, there is something I cannot accept, and which the PHA and the British Lung Foundation certainly cannot accept. A number of airlines already accept small oxygen cylinders in the cabin for the personal use of patients. Why on earth can we not say that, if it is good enough for those airlines, it applies across the board? The practical issue of security and so on has clearly been overcome by those airlines. Why can this not apply to all airlines?
