Motion text

That this House recognises that night flights taking off and landing at airports in highly residential areas are having a negative impact on the lives of local residents; acknowledges that an eight hour period of uninterrupted sleep is necessary for physical and mental wellbeing; notes that the elderly, pregnant women and children are most at risk from the impact of sleep deprivation; and urges the Government to look at the legislation again which permits these night flights to take place at the expense of residents' well-being.
