HC Deb 28 January 1974 vol 868 c6W
Mr. Kershaw

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he is aware of the hardship caused to gliding clubs operating from Nympsfield, Gloucestershire, if they cannot fly on Sundays; and, in view of the fact that this ban will result in only a small fuel saving but cause the collapse of these and other gliding clubs, whether he will now relax his policy in this regard.

Mr. Onslow

There is no discrimination, but I am aware of the problems created by the restriction on Sunday flying, and my right hon. Friend has already announced the end of the ban on gliders other than aero-towed gliders. I am considering with my noble Friend the Secretary of State for Energy whether further relaxation would now be justified.
