HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 cc97-8W
Mr. Mudd

asked the Minister of Aviation Supply, in view of the fact that the social survey into the effects of sonic boom contains inaccuracies in the questions which throw its thoroughness into doubt, if he will institute a rephrasing of the survey to relate opinion to what the person interviewed has experienced.

Mr. David Price

I am not aware of any inaccuracies in the questions. The aim of the survey is to gain a general indication of people's subjective response to supersonic overflights during the limited number of flights by Concorde down the West Coast. I consider the questions posed by the survey are reasonable for this purpose.
