HC Deb 01 May 1964 vol 694 cc111-2W
Sir J. Arbuthnot

asked the Minister of Aviation if he will make a further statement about progress made with the Anglo-French project for a supersonic airliner, and in particular about the effect of the latest developments in relation to noise in Great Britain.

Mr. Amery

I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement I made in answer to Questions by the hon. Members for Newton (Mr. Lee) and Macclesfield (Sir A. V. Harvey) on 5th February last. Careful study is being given to the problem of keeping the noise of the Concord within acceptable limits so as to avoid undue disturbance beneath the flight path or in the vicinity of airports.
