HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 c98W
Mr. Mudd

asked the Minister of Aviation Supply if he will now undertake not to hold further test flights of Concorde over Cornwall.

Mr. David Price

No. These flights are an essential part of the Concorde programme. The route down the West Coast was chosen after very careful examination of all alternatives, and remains the one best meeting the technical, safety and air traffic control demands whilst affecting the fewest people.
