HC Deb 04 December 1963 vol 685 cc191-2W
101. Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Minister of Aviation how many complaints his Department has received over the past year from residents in the London area over aircraft noise; and how this figure compares with that for the previous comparable year.

Mr. Marten

Five hundred and forty-one such complaints were received at London Airport (Heathrow) during the twelve months ending 31st October, 1963, including 117 from one Richmond resident. This compares with 533 in the previous twelve months, including 105 from the same individual.
