§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is aware of the recent increase in noise levels at Manchester Airport; and what action he proposes to take.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
I am aware that there has been an increase in activity at Manchester Airport which may have led to some increase in noise disturbance. Action to reduce noise disturbance is a matter for the owners, Manchester Corporation. I understand that they already operate a variety of noise abatement measures and are also considering others.
