HC Deb 20 July 1955 vol 544 cc55-6W
Mr. Hunter

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is aware of the recent disturbances caused to the residents of Cranford, their children being frightened, and church services disrupted, by low-flying four-engined aircraft using No. 1 runway at London Airport; and, in view of the fact that an undertaking was given by his predecessor in October, 1953, that the use of No. 1 runway would be restricted to take-offs to the west, and landings to the east, what steps he proposes to take to secure the carrying out of this undertaking by the authorities at London Airport.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

On the facts of the matter I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Heston and Isleworth (Mr. R. Harris) on 22nd June. I would add that my predecessor's statement did not go anything like so far as the hon. Member alleges.
