HC Deb 07 July 1971 vol 820 cc387-8W
60. Mr. Simon Mahon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is aware of the inconvenience caused by industrial noises by night and day to the inhabitants of Bootle, Litherland and North Merseyside; what action is to be taken to lessen this; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

I have received no complaints on this subject. Under the Noise Abatement Act it is the responsibility of the local authority to require, and of the courts to enforce, the abatement of noise nuisance.
