HC Deb 11 July 1968 vol 768 c124W
39. Mr. Ellis

asked the Minister of Technology what were the results of the sonic bang tests held over Bristol and other areas in 1967; and how much compensation was paid out in the various areas as a result of those tests.

Mr. Benn

I shall report on the tests shortly.

Just under £4,000 has been paid against claims for damages, £3,200 in the London area, £700 in the Bristol Channel area, and the remainder in Dorset.
