HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 cc231-2W
48. Mr. R. C. Mitchell

asked the President of Board of Trade what representations he has had from residents in the Southampton area regarding aircraft noise; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. William Rodgers

We have received about a dozen complaints this year. In reply we have explained why it has been necessary for the College of Air Training to use Southampton, and have suggested that the Southampton airport authority are best placed to decide what noise abatement measures are required.
