asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware of the inconvenience caused to the citizens of Belfast by the frequency of aircraft based on Sydenham, Belfast, flying at low altitudes over the city; and if he will take steps to abate the danger and nuisance by using instead one of the more remotely situated aerodromes in Northern Ireland.

This airfield is so close to Belfast that aircraft landing and taking off must inevitably fly low over parts of the city, but I can assure my hon. Friend that the volume of flying is expected to decrease considerably during the coming months. I regret I cannot use another aerodrome, since none offers the same facilities.
