HC Deb 18 July 1929 vol 230 c637W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the increase of street noises, particularly in London, caused mainly by traffic, inflicting considerable suffering, and being a general menace to health; and what steps, if any, he proposes to take to abate the nuisance?


I have been asked to reply. This matter was considered by a Conference convened by my predecessor in October, 1928, and as a result of the recommendations contained in their Report, the Motor Car (Excessive Noise) Regulations were made on 3rd June and will come into operation on 1st August.
