§ Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with the USSR and East German authorities about increasing the permitted maximum altitude at which civil aircraft, using the three air corridors from West Germany to Berlin, may fly.
§ Mr. Hattersley
We have not had any discussions on Berlin air services with either the Soviet or the East German authorities. There is no legal limitation on the height at which British civilian or military aircraft may fly while in the corridors.
