HC Deb 15 June 1931 vol 253 c1442W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether the attention of his Department has been drawn to the granting of a licence under which flying is permitted in a field next to the only playing field of the Kingswood School, Bath; and, seeing that aeroplanes are constantly flying low over the playing field, causing distraction and possible danger to the boys, if he will consider the advisability of refusing to continue the licence?


I understand that there is no suggestion that the flying interferes with the work of the school, which I gather is some distance away, but that the field used is near to the school's playing field. Representations on the lines mentioned by my hon. Friend have recently been received (after the licence had been issued), but I am informed that the use of this site for flying has been, and will be, intermittent only. Further, the licence only holds good until 31st October next. If an application for renewal is made, my hon. Friend may be assured that all representations will be carefully considered.
