To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the resumption of flights by Italy and Germany to Sharm el-Sheikh; what plans they have to allow the resumption of such flights from the UK; and what assessment they have made of the impact of the UK's ban on flights to that city on the likelihood of terror attacks in the UK.
It is for each country to define the security requirements they need to protect their citizens. We do not comment on the aviation security measures that other countries have in place, nor do we assess other impacts on the current restrictions on flights.
The UK continues to work closely with the Egyptian authorities, sharing aviation security expertise, and we look forward to achieving the return of flights when the situation allows.
The terrorist threat level to the UK is kept under constant review by the independent Joint Terrorist Analysis Centre, whose judgements about the threat level are made on the basis of the very latest intelligence. However, it is long standing government policy not to comment in detail on security arrangements.
