§ Mr. Ben Chapman
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what guidance he gives to the Civil Aviation Authority regarding air traffic control delays. 
§ Mr. McNulty
None. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) exercises its role as the independent regulator for National Air Traffic Services Ltd. through the licence issued to that company; one of the conditions of which is a delay term. The CAA sets this delay term taking into account consultation with interested parties and its duties and objectives under the Transport Act 2000.
