While in the U. K., David Willetts, the Universities and Science Minister, pronounced plans “to determine how the U.K., indeed the whole of Europe, can best position itself to take advantage of space plane activities.” He is sure Europe must first formulate a regulatory framework for the “reusable aircraft launchers”.
