§ 51. Mr. Rankin
asked the Minister of Aviation whether he has drawn the attention of the International Civil Air Organisation to the delays caused to British aircraft by the acute air traffic congestion in the New York area, despite the use of the VOR/DME system.94W
§ Mr. Rippon
Air traffic control at Idle-wild is the responsibility of the United States authorities and I have no information on the causes of the delay to which the hon. Member refers. The International Civil Aviation Organisation is, of course, already aware of our views on the advantages of a hyperbolic area coverage navigation system.
