§ Viscount Hinchingbrooke
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he has investigated the reports of low-flying aircraft at Weymouth and given instructions for the practice to cease.
§ Mr. Strachey
The complaint forwarded by the Noble Lord has been investigated. The aircraft were carrying out armament training during which some low flying near Weymouth is unavoidable, though it is kept to a minimum. This training will now be reduced, and we are also investigating the possibility of making further improvements.
