HC Deb 25 March 1975 vol 889 c135W
59. Sir G. Sinclair

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will extend to the Gatwick area the free insurance scheme recently introduced at Heathrow to protect householders from damage caused by air turbulence or vortices caused by low-flying aircraft.

Mr. Clinton Davis:

The scheme to which the hon. Member refers was introduced voluntarily by the British Airports Authority. The need for similar action at Gatwick would clearly depend on whether the same conditions existed there as at Heathrow and up to the present I am not aware of any reports of damage at Gatwick of the kind experienced at Heathrow.
