The hon. Gentleman is obviously well informed about airport matters, as he represents one of the UK’s leading airports. I welcome his contribution.

It has been a good debate but I cannot propose that my colleagues support the amendment, and I hope the Opposition consider withdrawing it. I can reassure them that the Bill as drafted will give the CAA tools to deal with the sort of problems discussed today that are much more effective than those under the current regime. Therefore, I hope they will support the Bill and the clause they seek to amend.
