Mr Lewis wrote: "My one specific question is 'why does the Secretary of State for Wales not support the devolution of APD to Wales on long-haul flights'?
A 2015 report commissioned by Bristol Airport, and carried out by York Aviation, said APD being devolved to Wales, for the purpose of it being scrapped completely or significant reduced, could cost the region 1,500 jobs and over PS800m in GVA.
Meanwhile with its introduction of the Air Departure Tax Bill as a replacement for APD, it is believed it could create 4,000 jobs in Scotland and generate PS1bn for the economy.
And, because APD is a UK departure tax, the domestic traveller ends up paying twice on return trips, when the international traveller pays it only once.
These will grow when we cut APD and boost jobs and spending.
