HC Deb 14 March 1956 vol 550 cc51-2W
88. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Minister of Supply what complaints he has had of supersonic explosions over Portsmouth last week and on Monday, 5th March; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Erroll

One complaint for the week ended 3rd March and one on 5th March. The preparations for the recent speed record flights were no doubt in part responsible, but the rules which my right hon. Friend announced on 11th July in reply to a Question from my hon. Friend the Member for Maidstone (Sir A. Bossom) were carefully observed.
