HC Deb 14 May 1973 vol 856 c998
7. Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he expects to receive the report of the working party of the Noise Advisory Council on minimum noise routes.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

I understand that the report will be received early in 1974.

Mr. Jessel

In view of the need to share the burden of aircraft noise more equitably than is possible with the present system of flight paths, will my hon. Friend announce interim measures to relieve the position?

Mr. Heseltine

I know that my hon. Friend realises what a difficult and complicated situation this is. We are consulting local interests about possible changes later this week.
