That this House calls on the UK Government to honour its earlier commitment to devolve the responsibility for Air Passenger Duty (APD) to the Scottish Government; believes that by having the power to lower APD, Scottish airports would benefit from a more level playing field and would be able to attract passengers who routinely travel south of the border to benefit from cheaper flights; agrees with recent comments from Transport Scotland that `there is no good reason why passengers in Scotland should have to continue to travel in such numbers through other UK airports or should not benefit from levels of connectivity enjoyed in other parts of the UK'; and understands that Scotland's four largest airports also back calls for the devolution of APD in order to ensure that the interests of passengers in Scotland are supported and, as such, believes that the power to collect and vary the tax should be transferred to the Scottish Parliament as soon as possible.
