§ Mr. Cleaver
asked the Minister of Aviation what action is being taken to safeguard the population against accidents and noise when the runway is extended at Elmdon Aerodrome, Birmingham.
§ Mr. Marten
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Meriden on (Mr. Matthews) in answer to a similar Question. The Birmingham Corporation is fully aware of its responsibility to minimise disturbance from noise as far as is practicable.
