My hon. Friend makes an interesting point, which to a certain extent reinforces the point made by the hon. Member for Finchley and Golders Green about the nature and quality of the information that should be collected and how it should be collected.

We want a licence condition to state that the information must be collected. I suspect that some airports will collect more information than others, but we should have a basic requirement, or floor, of information, so that there is at least a starting point for passengers to look at what they might experience when they arrive at different airports. Having declared a benchmark, we hope that airports would use that information to improve their performance year on year.
