§ 5. Mr. Allason
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps he is taking to restrict night flying by charter aircraft.
§ Mr. Allason
Is my right hon. Friend content to see a steady expansion of 4 night flying? Is he content that more and more people should be driven demented by sleeplessness? Will he please carry out an investigation with the travel industry to determine exactly the effect of a total ban on night flights by charter aircraft?
§ Mr. Noble
I assure my hon. Friend that I am by no means content with the level of noise which surrounds the particular airport in which he is interested, as well as others. We are continually discussing with the industry ways and means of reducing this nuisance without doing serious damage to the tourist industry, which is also important to the country.
