The Commerce Commission is now due to issue its draft report recommending whether price controls should be introduced on airfield activities at Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch International Airports on June 29.

September 4-7, 10 and 12-14 Conference where interested parties can provide further information and the Commission can ask questions. The media and public can attend. November 2 Commission reports to the Minister of Commerce with final recommendations as to whether price controls should be imposed.
