HC Deb 26 July 1971 vol 822 cc2-3W
15. Mr. Hastings

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he is aware of the increase in noise levels resulting from recent low flying regulations at Luton Airport; and whether he anticipates that alternative procedures and routes will be able to alleviate the position in the future.

Mr. Noble

I am well aware of all aspects of the serious noise disturbance in the vicinity of Luton Airport. In cooperation with Luton Corporation we are considering possible route adjustments and other forms of alleviation. I hope that some improvement may be possible eventually, though I cannot promise immediate or dramatic results.
