HC Deb 05 May 1965 vol 711 c166W
37. Mr. John Hall

asked the Minister of Aviation in view of the fact that the noise level reached during recent sonic boom tests in Huntingdonshire is acceptable, what other tests will be carried out in the areas over which supersonic aircraft will be operating, in order that people most likely to be affected may have an opportunity of gauging the degree to which the noise is acceptable to them.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

As I said in answer yesterday to a Question by the hon. Member for Meriden (Mr. Rowland), I do not consider the tests at Upwood to have been conclusive one way or the other. We and the French are considering what further tests might be carried out.
