HC Deb 05 May 1955 vol 540 c1905
63. Mr. de Freitas

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the nuisance caused to the residents of Yarborough Crescent. Lincoln, by the daily firing practice on the rifle range at the barracks on Burton Road; and what steps he will take to lessen this nuisance either by holding the firing practice outside the city or by building screening walls to reduce the noise.

The Under-Secretary of State for War (Mr. Fitzroy Maclean)

This is the first complaint we have received about this range, and I am seeing whether anything can be done to reduce the noise of firing.
