HC Deb 22 June 1964 vol 697 c26W
Mr. Clive Bossom

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will undertake research into an effective means of checking the noise level of motor vehicles' exhaust systems, with a view to reducing the excessive noise of present-day traffic.

Mr. Marples

Equipment has been developed which is effective for measuring the noise of a vehicle on the road. I am now considering how best to reinforce the present Regulations about excessive noise from motor vehicles in accordance with the recommendations made by the Wilson Committee.
