§ Mr. Chris Smith
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects the review of policy air support to be completed; what are its terms of reference; which persons sit on the review body; in what capacities; and from whom they are taking evidence.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
I understand that the safety aspects of police air support are under review by the Civil Aviation Authority with the assistance of officials of the534W Department and representatives of the police service. Detailed questions about the review should be addressed to the authority.
