HC Deb 11 December 1947 vol 445 c247W
119. Mr. Blackburn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take measures to regulate the use of loudspeaker vans in private residential areas.

Mr. Ede

County councils and borough councils have power to make a by-law, subject to confirmation by the Secretary of State, prohibiting the use of amplifiers in streets so as to cause annoyance. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of the latest form of the by-law.
