asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that low flying to the danger of the public is still prevalent in the North-East of Scotland; and whether he will take steps to prevent a continuance of this practice.

Low flying is contrary to regulations and is subject to heavy penalties, except when specially authorised for training purposes over sparsely populated districts. Special steps have been taken to impress upon the Service the importance of complying with the regulations. I have no information that unauthorised low flying is prevalent in North-East Scotland, but if the hon. Member will let me know of cases that come to his notice, I will gladly look into them.
