On 22 May 2009, the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) published a summary of the application, under section 179 of the Enterprise Act 2002, by BAA to challenge the legality of certain findings of the Competition Commission in its final report on the BAA airports market investigation. BAA is seeking an order that the CAT quash those findings in the final report requiring the divestiture of Gatwick Airport, Stansted Airport and one of Edinburgh or Glasgow airports and the findings on which that requirement is based. It claims that the divestiture remedies are unlawful on the basis of apparent bias and lack of proportionality.
