§ Mr. FREEMAN
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?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
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.
