§ Mr. JOHNSTONE
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the nuisance to their neighbours caused by the users of wireless and gramophone loud-speakers in private houses, he proposes to take any steps to control the hours at which such instruments may be used?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
Representations have been made to me as to the nuisance caused to residents in some urban areas by the inconsiderate use of wireless loudspeakers and gramophones by their neighbours, and after careful consideration of the circumstances I have decided that the matter can properly be dealt with by good rule by-law under Section 23 of the Municipal Corporations Act, 1882. It is hoped to have available shortly a form of by-law on the subject suitable for adoption by local authorities where there is adequate evidence of the existence of this nuisance.
