HC Deb 30 June 1952 vol 503 c12W
Mr. F. P. Crowder

asked the Minister of Civil Aviation whether he will arrange for the checking and overhaul of aeroplanes at Northolt to be carried out before midnight, as the constant noise after that hour is proving a nuisance to those living in the vicinity.

Mr. Maudling

It is necessary to carry out some aircraft engine running at night in order to have aircraft serviceable for operations the following morning. The operators have been asked to keep such engine running to a minimum.
