HC Deb 23 October 1973 vol 861 cc486-7W
Mr. Russell Kerr

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) what damage attributable to Concorde has been caused to the roofs of houses in the vicinity of Heathrow and other United Kingdom airports; and whether he will make a statement;

(2) what damage has been caused to roofs by Concorde during demonstration flights abroad and especially during the course of the Paris Air Show of 1969; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Onslow

Roof tiles are occasionally displaced by the passage of large aircraft on approach to airports. From all Concorde flying to date, this has been reported on two occasions; at Le Bourget on 1st June 1969, and at Heathrow on 1st July 1972.
