Section 98: CAA’s air navigation functions

303.Section 98 amends section 66 of the TA 2000 so as to replace the Secretary of State's power to nominate a member to perform certain of the CAA's air navigation functions with a duty for the chief executive of the CAA to consult the Secretary of State before nominating, with the approval of the chair and at least one other non-executive member, another executive member to perform such of the CAA's air navigation functions as the Secretary of State may specify. It also amends section 67 of the TA 2000 to ensure that the Secretary of State may only nominate a non-executive member to perform the national security functions in section 67.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
