But shadow transport secretary Theresa Villiers said Labour's "misjudgement and mismanagement" had "badly let down" the travelling public and urged the Prime Minister to immediately announce a full inquiry into the "fiasco".
She added: "Six days into the crisis, we're suddenly told that there are actually levels of ash which are compatible with safe flying. The question angry passengers and airlines are already asking is why the government hadn't worked this out before the crisis occurred."
Ahh, it's such an easy life in opposition. Just stand there are criticise anyone for anything. I think it's right that the government erred on the side of caution, better that than being too careless and people loosing their lives. And to start making party politics out of it is pathetic. I really hope that the Tories petty squabbling backfires on them in the election, but I'm not holding my breath on it.
