HC Deb 07 July 1954 vol 529 cc2139-40
28. Major Sir R. Conant

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he will give instructions to restrict as far as practicable the low flying of aircraft on Sundays during the hours when church services are normally held.

Mr. Ward

Some training at weekends is inevitable, particularly for the Royal Auxiliary Air Force and the Royal Observer Corps, but every effort is made to restrict low flying during the normal hours of church services on Sundays.

Sir R. Conant

Can my hon. Friend pass on any instructions or suggestions which he may send out to our Allies in the United States and Canadian Air Forces?

Mr. Ward

Yes, Sir. Their rules about low flying on Sundays are the same as ours.
