HC Deb 14 May 1947 vol 437 c1489
31. Mr. Bowden

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that low night flying still continues over the city of Leicester, that workers are having their rest disturbed; and if he will take the necessary action with local R.A.F. units to prevent flying over this built-up area during the hours of darkness.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

No complaints about night flying over Leicester have reached my Department or the civil police since my hon. Friend last asked me a question on the subject on 5th February. I am, however, warning all units in the Leicester area that they should avoid flying over the town at night.

Mr. Rankin

Will my right hon. Friend see that the ban applies not only during hours of darkness, but also during the day?

Mr. Noel-Baker

I would like notice of that.
