Select Committee on Transport, Local Government and the Regions Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence

Supplementary memorandum by The Guild of Air Traffic Control Officers (NAT 1A)

Further evidence session on NATS finances: Tuesday 11 June 2002

  Thank you for the recent telephone call concerning the further evidence session.

  I have spoken with my Executive Board and at this stage we have no further evidence to present to you other than to request that the Transport Sub-Committee consider in greater depth the following areas of concern to the Guild:

    (1)  The financial positions of the two NATS Companies, NERL and NSL be examined separately and not as a whole to determine in more detail the exact financial status.

    (2)  The effect that continuing uncertainty on the future financial position of NATS is having on its staff, particularly its Air Traffic Controllers, who are being placed under even more additional stress by recent equipment failures.

  Unfortunately the Executive Board and myself will be holding a board meeting in Scotland on 11 June and will therefore be unable to attend your further oral evidence session.

Richard Dawson
