HC Deb 18 June 1969 vol 785 c105W
68. Mr. Hugh Jenkins

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, having regard to the United States Federal Aviation Agencies' adoption of the aim of limiting aircraft noise to a maximum of 80 perceived noise decibels as soon as this is technically practicable, he will adopt the same aim.

Mr. William Rodgers

The F.A.A. has not yet adopted such an aim. Our own objective is to reduce aircraft noise by all means that are reasonably practicable and to continue to give a lead internationally on this.
