– Scottish Parliament written question – answered on 21st January 2003.
To ask the Scottish Executive whether, in considering the future of the licensed airfield at Traigh Mhor on Barra, it, or any bodies from which it is taking advice, have taken any account of any aircraft accident or serious incident, as defined by the United Kingdom Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) and published in any of the AAIB's (i) monthly bulletins, (ii) formal reports and (iii) special bulletins.
The safety of passengers is paramount at all times at airports owned by the ministers and operated by Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd. The Executive must ensure that safety is the primary consideration at these airports. No reportable accidents or serious incidents have occurred at Barra.
