HC Deb 23 October 1973 vol 861 cc1112-22

Question again proposed, That the amendment to the proposed Lords amendment be made.

Mr. Heseltine

I was dealing with the amount of work that is being undertaken in the noise area. The whole House is concerned, as are we in government, that this work should continue. I wish to add to what was said in Question Time yesterday on the noise standards as they apply to the ICAO Annexe 16. Although I cannot make any commitment about the outcome, we are actively considering the extent to which it would be practical to take into account the attitudes of other countries to require more aircraft types using our airports to comply with the noise standards in Annexe 16 of the Chicago Convention. This is in keeping with the part we have played and are playing in ICAO in the study of the complex international problem of seeking to quieten older types of aircraft.

Mr. Crosland

Could the Minister give some idea of how much money the Government are now spending in encouraging the development of hush kits for the Spey engine? Since we know that the Spey engine is the worst offender in the Trident and BAC111, may we be told how much the Government are spending on this development?

Mr. Heseltine

As the right hon. Gentleman will know, the British Aircraft Corporation and Rolls-Royce have a real interest in the use of the Spey engine in the BAC111. They have started a study, costing £200,000, into the preparation and the possibility of developing a hush kit for the Spey engine. All I would add is what I said about the Government looking at the possibilities and the introduction of Annexe 16 standard to our airports. The right hon. Gentleman will understand the relationship of that to the whole problem.

I have been asked about the regional studies of the Civil Aviation Authority. These are regarded—rightly—as being important in the long-term development of civil aviation in this country. As the House will know, the Civil Aviation Authority has made clear its view that a single comprehensive study leading to a plan for an ideal airport network for the United Kingdom would probably be impracticable. It was for this reason that it started a number of regional studies which have been either published or are in process of being published or developed. The work being carried out in this direction will be incorporated into the report that the Government will present to Parliament when it is ready for consideration.

My hon. Friend the Member for Faversham (Mr. Moate) was arguing for a two-year delay, a genuine argument. But the Government have to satisfy the House by the report to be published whether the House should agree to the decision to go forward with the Maplin proposition. Therefore, it is not right to set a two year, 18-month or three-year delay. The important thing is whether the House should accept the argument when the report is published. Within those arguments, it will be necessary—the Government fully accept it having consulted the Civil Aviation Authority—to incorporate the latest findings we can, with the possibility of growth of traffic in the regions.

My hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow, East (Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson) made an extremely important speech. He asked the question which has vexed probably everybody with this particular responsibility. That is whether the options, of trying to cope with air traffic in the future, include the possibility of a green field site being developed in this country. This is relevant not only to the South-East but to the Association of British Chambers of Commerce report which suggests that we should develop extensive airports in certain regional centres. It is relevant to my hon. Friends who are interested in the Gatwick situation.

The fact is that however many people argue that quieter engines are coming, the vast majority do not believe that aircraft bring anything other than noisy intrusion into their lives. There is nothing that the Government could do, even if they wanted to, to persuade them otherwise. My hon. Friend is right to ask whether we are being realistic in thinking that there is an alternative strategy for airports which does not involve the construction of a coastal site.

Hon. Members have asked questions about the procedures to be followed in the publication of the Government report. My hon. Friends the Members for Windsor, Tiverton (Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop) and Bristol North-East (Mr. Adley) asked substantial questions. I should like to deal with them because they are important to the debate. First, the Government are committed, following their consultative processes, which are covered by amendments, to the publication of the report. Obviously the report will be of great concern to the House. The Government will then introduce an order subject to negative procedure. It will be for the House to decide whether it wishes to pray against that order.

We give these assurances very clearly. First of all, there will be a full debate—a full day's debate. Secondly, no steps will be taken—I say this in particular in answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Tiverton—to allow work to start during the 40-day period during which Prayers can take place.

I hope that, with these assurances, which, I think, cover the three points which were put to me, my hon. Friends will feel that we have given full assurances which will satisfy all the doubts which might conceivably arise on that matter.

I would say to my hon. Friend the Member for Canterbury (Mr. Crouch) that I very much hope that he will not feel it necessary to inject the rigidity of a two-year delay into this legislation. The reasons why I say that are, I think, clear. This is a highly controversial decision we are asking the House to consider and to decide upon when the order is introduced. The fact remains that there will undoubtedly be as deeply held feelings then as there have been all the way through the third London airport controversy—as indeed there are all across the world when anybody tries to-day to build a new airport. It will be right for the House to recognise that if a decision is taken to go ahead with Maplin at that time there should not be a rigidity in the time in which the decision should be implemented. It is fair that once the decision is taken there should be no question of its being held up in the way suggested.

It would be reasonable to ask that the Government should be given all reasonable time to produce their report. There would be no purpose in the Government's producing a report insufficiently prepared to satisfy the House, because the House would not accept it. That is the safeguard which I very much hope my hon. Friend and the House will feel able to accept.

In putting this request as I have to my hon. Friend I think I sum up the whole dilemma of this matter. It is, and will remain, a controversial decision. It affects millions of people in this country, and there is no way in which that can be avoided. But there is no doubt that it is the Government's wish, in the light of the immense public anxiety and interest, that we should provide all the latest information and have one final look at it.

I hope that, given the assurances which my right hon. Friend gave, and amplified, perhaps, by one or two things which I have said tonight, the House will feel that we have gone as far as we can possibly be expected to go to meet the legitimate anxieties which have been expressed on behalf of the wider public. I hope very much that my hon. Friend the Member for Canterbury will feel able to withdraw his amendment to the Lords amend-

ment and that the House will feel able to accept the Lords amendment No. 4 and that the Opposition will feel that, as the subjects dealt with by their two amendments we are debating to the Lords amendments, will be covered by our report, it will not he unnecessary to press their amendments to a Division.

Mr. Crouch

By leave of the House, I would just say that this Bill has come back considerably changed to this place from the other place, but that is not the only change which has taken place. I have seen and witnessed a transformation in the Secretary of State this afternoon in his whole attitude towards the Maplin Development Bill, and I welcome that change because he has shown generosity in listening to the arguments both for and against the Maplin development. It is because of that that I wonder whether I also should change rather than continue my reckless abandon in opposing the Government.

I have already said to the House that I am against the Maplin project, but I have received assurances, the House has heard assurances, from the Secretary of State and from the Minister for Aerospace and Shipping, to the effect that they are prepared at least to listen to the House, and I cannot ask for more than that. In view of those assurances, and of the fact that we are going to be able to debate this matter when the Government make their report following their consultations, I beg to ask leave to withdraw my amendment to the Lords amendment.
