HC Deb 18 March 1969 vol 780 c67W
Mr. Molloy

asked the President of the Board of Trade why Her Majesty's Government apply different criteria regarding noise nuisance as between industry and aircraft; and if he will make a statement on this matter in amplification of that contained in the report, Noise, Command Paper Number 2056.

Mr. William Rodgers

Industrial noise is generally confined to a relatively narrow radius around premises where the owner can take whatever measures are open to him to abate the nuisance. Aircraft noise is not confined to a static location and noise abatement measures must take account of the needs of safety and air traffic control.
