HC Deb 14 July 1965 vol 716 cc63-4W
46. Mr. T. G. D. Galbraith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of recent complaints about noise, what steps he intends to take to limit disturbance caused to coastal areas by noise from hovercraft; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ross

I have no power to intervene in this matter. The service between Largs and Millport has been instituted with the approval of the local authorities concerned and is being operated in accordance with a permit granted by the Ministry of Aviation.
