§ Mr. Michael Latham
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) whether he proposes to reintroduce the Protection of the Environment Bill, which lapsed at the dissolution of the last Parliament; and whether he will make a statement;
(2) what proposals he has for fresh legislation dealing with the control of noise on construction sites.
§ Mr. Crosland
I am reviewing the relevant noise abatement provisions which were included in the Protection of the Environment Bill and in this connection would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Rossi) on Friday, 5th April 1974.—[Vol. 871, c.460.]
