The British government published it long-awaited Transport Bill on December 1, 1999. The bill seeks to give legislative effect to a number of the key policy strands in the 1998 integrated transport White Paper. The White Paper itself was a landmark document in recognizing the scale of problems and the need to take action. Among others, the bill calls for the establishment of a public-private partnership between the government and a private sector partner to run National Air Traffic Services which is owned and run by the Civial Aviation Authority.
