asked the Secretary of State for Trade what restrictions are to be applied to night jet movements at Heathrow and at Gatwick in the summer season from 1st April to 30th October 1975.

At Heathrow the permitted number of night jet movements in the period will be 2,600 by comparison with the limit of 3,300 imposed for the summer of 1974. The limit for Gatwick, as compared with 3,750 in 1974, will be 3,100; the overall limit at both airports includes a quota of 200 movements reserved for noise-certificated aircraft. The hours of restriction at both airports, and the severe restriction on night jet departures at Heathrow, will apply on the same basis as in the summer of 1974.
