Transport Bill — 28 Nov 2000

Mr Jeremy Corbyn MP, Islington North voted in the minority (No).

Commons reasons for insisting on disagreeing to certain Lords amendments and Government amendments in lieu, considered.

I beg to move, That this House insists on its disagreement to Lords amendments Nos. 27 to 29.

Mr. Speaker:

With this it will be convenient to discuss Government amendments (a) to (c) in lieu.

Moreover, we had balloons stating, "Our air is not for sale."--[ Official Report, House of Lords , 27 November 2000; Vol. 619, c. 1216.]

is designed to give the Government time to explain more fully

a public consultation on our White Paper after we had announced the proposal for the partial sale of NATS in June 1998. A Statement was made following that consultation and there has been a Select Committee inquiry. Therefore, there has been ample time for public scrutiny of the policy and of its detail.--[ Official Report, House of Lords , 27 November 2000; Vol. 619, c. 1209.]

We will search out at every turn new ways and new ideas to tackle the new issues . . . how to put the public and private sector together in partnership to give us the infrastructure and transport system we need.

The massive growth in flights places a growing burden on ageing Air Traffic Control equipment. To help improve safety, the Labour government intends to introduce a Public Private Partnership to bring in over £1 billion investment over the next 10 years.

Question put:--

The House divided: Ayes 305, Noes 217.
