The Court of Appeal has reinstated the report of the Competition Commission which required the sale by BAA of Gatwick airport, Stansted airport and one of Glasgow or Edinburgh airports. The Court of Appeal’s judgment over turns the effect of an earlier decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal which set aside the report on the basis that apparent bias arose in relation to the position of one of the members of the Commission appointed to investigate and report on the supply of airport services in the United Kingdom. The Court of Appeal refused permission to BAA to appeal to the Supreme Court.
Ben Rayment was junior counsel to the Commission.
