HL Deb 21 January 1981 vol 416 c484WA
Lord Glenarthur

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When secondary surveillance radar is to be installed at Aberdeen to facilitate radar identification and monitoring of air traffic using Aberdeen Airport and whether such equipment would be capable of interpretation by both Aberdeen Air Traffic Control and the Scottish Air Traffic Control Centre at Prestwick; and

What were the average weekly air traffic movements along Air Traffic Advisory Route DW5 between Sumburgh and Aberdeen in the months of January and June in the years 1972, 1974, 1976, 1978 and 1980; and

Why Air Traffic Advisory Routes DW5, DB22, DW3 and DW4 have not been upgraded to Airways thereby allowing civilian air traffic using them the full benefits of controlled airspace.

Lord Trefganre

This is a matter for the Civil Aviation Authority and I have asked the chairman to write to the noble Lord.
