HC Deb 30 June 1954 vol 529 c1343
32. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the nuisance caused by low-flying aircraft over built-up areas in Rugby; and what steps he is taking to curb this contravention of regulations.

The Under-Secretary of State for Air (Mr. George Ward)

As far as I know, there has been no low flying by Royal Air Force aircraft over Rugby. If the hon. Member has any particular incident in mind, perhaps he would let me have details?

Mr. Johnson

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this low flying by jets terrifies youngsters in my constituency? I can give him some information; will he take some action in the matter if and when I do so?

Mr. Ward

I would be very grateful for anything the hon. Member can tell me, but we have checked with the local police and they have received no complaint and seen no low flying.
