Mr. Robert Ainsworth
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) what representations he has received concerning the withdrawal of training approved from South East Kent College of Air Training by the Civil Aviation Authority;
(2) what safeguards exist to ensure the Civil Aviation Authority, in its dealings with training providers, does not use its powers as a regulatory body unfairly.
(3) if he will intervene to ensure the Civil Aviation Authority creates a transitional arrangement for the Southeast Kent college of air training to meet new training standards to allow it to continue to provide training for air traffic controllers;
(4) what safeguards exist to prevent the use by the Civil Aviation Authority of its powers as a regulatory body to safeguard its own interests as a training provider.
