Transport Bill — 28 Nov 2000
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).
Commons reasons for insisting on disagreeing to certain Lords amendments and Government amendments in lieu, considered.

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.
