HC Deb 26 June 1956 vol 555 cc245-6
28. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware of the inconvenience caused at Ely, Cardiff, by noise from the Western Welding Company factory; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Powell

My right hon. Friend has recently agreed to the lease by the Cardiff Corporation of some land on which the company intends to erect a new factory building further away from the houses. The work will then be done under cover, instead of in the open as at present, and matters should improve.

Mr. Thomas

Is the Minister satisfied that this proposal will eliminate the noise problem for these Ely residents, who at present are having their lives made a misery by this factory?

Mr. Powell

The local authority has attached to the planning permission such conditions as it thought necessary to preserve the peace of the neighbourhood.
