HC Deb 25 October 1971 vol 823 c222W
26. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, having regard to the number of complaints forwarded to him by the hon. Member for Chigwell at the instance of his constituents, he will make a statement about the stacking of aircraft in the area of the Chigwell Urban District and the Epping and Ongar Rural District.

Mr. Anthony Grant

The introduction of new departure and arrival patterns to deal with increased traffic in the London area required the use of the Ongar navigational beacon as an additional holding point for inbound aircraft. I am studying this situation in consultation with my hon. Friend and other hon. Members affected.
