HC Deb 18 April 1975 vol 890 c188W
Dr. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he has any plans for further restriction or prohibition of all-night movement of aircraft in and out of Heathrow Airport, in view of continued public concern about the matter.

Mr. Clinton Davis

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 30th January last to my hon. Friend the Membr for Hayes and Harlington (Mr. Sandelson)—[Vol. 885, c. 309–310]—which showed that the permitted number of night jet movements at Heathrow from 1st April to 31st October this year would be about 21 per cent. less than in the corresponding period of 1974. The level of restriction which might be appropriate in future is under review.
