§ Sir Clive Bossom
asked the Minister of Technology (1) whether it is planned to carry out supersonic flight tests in connection with the airliner Concorde over Herefordshire;241W
(2) whether he will give an assurance that early warning will be given to all farmers before supersonic bang tests take place over Herefordshire.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
Routes for Concorde test flights at supersonic speed have not yet been decided. I will make an announcement if tracks over land are eventually chosen. I will refer the hon. Member to my reply on 28th April to Questions by my hon. Friend the Member for King's Lynn (Mr. Derek Page) about warning of sonic bang tests.—[Vol. 782, c.182.]
