  653. Mr. Naughten asked the Minister for Transport the plans he has to introduce an acceptable form of identification other than a driver’s licence or a passport, for use with low cost air transport to the UK; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11457/04]

  Mr. Brennan: Decisions by any airline regarding what it considers to be acceptable identification for its own purposes are matters entirely for those airlines, and not matters in which I have any function. I understand that airlines’ requirements about forms of identification acceptable to them are clearly set down in the terms and conditions provided to passengers when, for instance, booking and purchasing tickets for low cost air transport to the UK. I have no plans to introduce another form of identification.
