§ 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.
