look to EU on night flights
A Europe-wide campaign to ban night flights at all European airports has been launched. This action was the outcome from the Noise Conference in Brussels held in November last year at which more than 200 delegates participated.
Five MEPs from across Europe (including Dr Caroline Lucas, the Green MEP for Southeast England), are sponsoring a Written Declaration to be presented to the European Parliament in April calling for a ban on night flights at all European airports between 11pm and 7am. If the Written Declaration can get 318 MEPs from across Europe to sign it, a ban on night flights effectively becomes the policy of the European Parliament.
from that conference are lobbying their MEPs and encouraging those communities
who are affected by night flights to do the same. The following is a list
of names and addresses that HACAN suggest you send your letters to: John
Bowis, Dr Charles Tannock, Ian Twinn, Theresa Villers (all Conservative)
Richard Balfe, Robert Evans, Mrs Mary Honeyball, Claude Moraes (all Labour)
Baroness Sarah Ludford (Lib Dem) Jean Lambert (Green)
