HC Deb 01 December 1926 vol 200 cc1206-7W
Viscount SANDON

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take steps to eliminate the noise of pneumatic drills used in schemes of road construction under his control?

Colonel ASHLEY

So far as I am aware, noiseless pneumatic drills are not obtainable at present, but I share my Noble Friend's view as to their desirability, and if an efficient type can be devised, I will do my best to encourage its use.
