HC Deb 17 June 1958 vol 589 c65W
78. Mr. Kershaw

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what representations he has received as to the future use of Moreton Valence aerodrome; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Bevins

Under the Building Restrictions (War-Time) Contraventions Act, 1946, the Gloucestershire County Council gave a determination which would allow the use of the airfield for testing aircraft to continue. A local resident appealed against this determination, mainly because of the disturbance due to noise. One of my right hon. Friend's inspectors has heard representations at a public local inquiry from the appellant and other local residents, from the Council, and also from the Gloster Aircraft Company and the National Farmers' Union. My right hon. Friend expects to issue his decision very soon and I will send a copy to my hon. Friend.
