HC Deb 29 March 1968 vol 761 cc339-40W
Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the Minister of Technology if he is aware that the estimated flight programme for the Con corde will cause hourly bangs in Wales and the South-West when it is flying from Heathrow to the United States of America; and if he will prohibit such flights.

Mr. Benn

The frequency of sonic bangs in any particular area will depend on the routes adopted for flights by S.S.T.s. No decision has yet been made either on these routes, or upon the question of policy on sonic bangs over land.
