To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what the status is of the review of the air space around RAF Brize Norton; and if he will take steps with the Secretary of State for Transport to ensure that objections to the proposed changes are taken into account before a final decision is taken.

The Brize Norton Airspace Change Proposal is intended to improve safety for all aviation users in the airspace around RAF Brize Norton.

The RAF is aware of the potential impact of its proposal on the public and the aviation community and therefore, in concert with London Oxford Airport, conducted a widespread public consultation. RAF Brize Norton has recently published the results of that consultation on its website.

Once complete the RAF will submit its finalised proposal to the Civil Aviation Authority who have responsibility for decisions on the regulation of UK airspace.
