MPs discuss aircraft air quality

02 July 2009

Tobias Ellwood, Conservative MP for Bournemouth East, introduced a debate in Westminster Hall on the quality of air in passenger aircraft. Mr Ellwood, a pilot, was particularly concerned about how cabin air pollution - known as aerotoxic syndrome - is reported to, and dealt with by, the airline industry.

Westminster Hall adjournment debates allow MPs to consider issues of local or personal interest which rarely have time to be debated in the main Chamber of the House of Commons. They enable MPs to discuss a variety of issues and to receive a response from a government Minister.
