HC Deb 23 March 1967 vol 743 cc317-8W
Mr. Bessell

asked the Minister of Transport to what extent she has decided to treat the noise level of 92 decibels as being the permissible maximum and why she has ignored the recommendations that the level of 85 decibels should be adopted as recommended by the Wilson Committee.

Mrs. Castle

The maximum noise levels to be prescribed for various classes of motor vehicles in the Regulations which I intend to make have not been settled; the second part of the Question does not therefore arise.
