HC Deb 30 October 2000 vol 355 cc277-8W
Mr. Peter Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will review procedures for the regulation of low-flying aircraft following the report of the UK Airprox Board into incidents over Northumberland in October 1999. [135126]

Dr. Moonie

As the third UK Airprox Board report makes clear, the military low flying adviser to the Board briefed members on a number of trial measures, agreed between military and civil bodies, following three Airprox involving military aircraft over Northumberland in October 1999. These measures aim to enhance flight safety in this area, minimise the risk of recurrence, and will be reviewed towards the end of the year.
