Lib Dems Welcome Sky Marshals and Propose Reform Of Security Passes

Don Foster MP, Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on proposals for `sky marshals’ being considered by Ministers, said:

“This is a welcome proposal that has the potential to reduce any terrorist threat and reassure passengers. But it must be done in conjunction with the airlines, and with their full support.

Main ImageMr Foster also called for reform of the issuing of airport security passes:

“Despite the tightening of security at airports, far more needs to be done about recent worrying incidents of people infiltrating high security areas.

“It is now time to give airport operators the sole responsibility for the issuing of security passes. At present far too many different bodies are involved. There is clear potential for confusion and a risk of inadequate levels of safety at airports as a result.”
