I remind my hon. Friend of a very powerful point made on Second Reading. Cardiff might benefit from being small enough for people to work together, but large enough for them actually to be there. My hon. Friend the Member for Hexham (Mr. Atkinson) pointed out that at Newcastle airport, and others slightly smaller than the one at Cardiff, there is often no protection at all. For many airports in the country it is not a question of whether people work together—there is no one there at all.
