HC Deb 17 October 1972 vol 843 cc41-2W
Dr. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is aware of the growing concern over aircraft noise in the Windsor/Maidenhead area; and if he will consider the possibilities of turning aircraft in a northerly direction towards Northolt or circumnavigating Maidenhead.

Mr. Onslow

Yes. The decision announced on 4th October, to ask the independent Noise Advisory Council to give further consideration to the question of minimum noise route policy and practice, was taken partly as a result of representations made about aircraft noise in the Windsor/Maidenhead area. The possibility of introducing alternative routes will be examined in the light of the Council's report.
