I am glad that the use it or lose it rule has been suspended because it makes no environmental sense to be flying empty aircraft in order to hang on to airport slots.

I am glad too that the Minister secured agreement to a revue of the regulations from an environmental point of view. I hope the review will conclude that the number of slots should be restricted so that aviation does not go through a short term boom at the end of the recession. Such a boom would be damaging to both the environment and the economy because finding and extracting oil is becoming rapidly more expensive and any growth in aviation, after the recession, will be unsustainable.
