HC Deb 09 March 1972 vol 832 c384W
Sir G. Sinclair

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he intends to seek further discussions with other Governments, through the International Civil Aviation Organisation, with a view to reducing the present maximum noise levels contained in the Air Navigation (Noise Certification) Order, 1970, of January, 1971.

Mr. Noble

The levels specified in the order are those at present internationally accepted. The I.C.A.O. Committee on Aircraft Noise, of which the United Kingdom is a member, is considering the possibility of a progressive reduction in those levels.
