§ Mr. Charles Morrison
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what hospitals would be affected by noise from Fairford airfield in the event of its reopening.
§ Mr. Moyle
I am not aware that noise from this airfield has caused problems to any hospital in the past. No decision on the choice of a base for additional KC135 tanker aircraft has yet been made, but my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence will take all the relevant factors into account, including those affecting the local environment, in reaching a decision.
