HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c385W
Mr. Hayhoe

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what are the latest figures for night jet movements at Heathrow since April this year; and how they compare with those for the same period last year.

Mr. Onslow

The figures up to midnight on 22nd July were:

1972 1973
Departures 224 150
Landings 1,759 1,879
1,983 2,029

In discussion with my officials, the airlines have now undertaken to reschedule a number of night flights to assist in achieving the target of a 10 per cent reduction in the total number of night movements.
