HC Deb 12 February 1980 vol 978 cc566-7W
31. Mr. John Home Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is satisfied with the conduct of low-level flying by military aircraft over the United Kingdom.

Mr. Pattie

Yes. Low-level flying training is crucial to operational proficiency and therefore to the security of the United Kingdom. I am satisfied that in general it is properly conducted in accordance with the regulations which have been drawn with full regard for safety and the interests of the public.
