Consultation description

In January 2012, the Department for Transport informally consulted on whether to remove the references to the Competition Commission in respect of mandatory airport charges conditions for Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports.

Following consideration, the Secretary of State for Transport Justine Greening decided to not make references for each of those airports. Her reasons are set out in her letter to consultee respondents. The formal direction to the CAA under section 40(9) of the Airports Act 1986 from Justine Greening is set out in her letter to the CAA.
