Adjournment debate

On 15 December 2009, Conservative MP James Brokenshire led an adjournment debate on flight noise and numbers from London City Airport.

Mr Brokenshire raised concerns about the impact on local residents of a 50% increase in flights from London City Airport coupled with a decision to increase the proportion of flights that are routed over Hornchurch and Havering.

Mr Brokenshire pressed the department of transport on what powers it has to intervene, telling the House that many local councils are against the decision.

The MP for Hornchurch and Rainham has previously opposed changes in flight routings and increases in flight numbers at the airport.
