HC Deb 29 June 1966 vol 730 cc273-4W
127. Captain W. Elliot

asked the Minister of Transport if she will give details of the roadside testing which has to take place before she will take action to reduce excessive noise made by vehicles on the road; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Swingler

The testing will consist of roadside checks on passing vehicles. This testing is necessary in order that my right hon. Friend can be satisfied that the proposed method of making checks and the proposed maximum noise levels are enforceable and fair in the various different conditions in which the checks are likely to take place.
