HC Deb 09 December 1974 vol 883 cc56-7W
Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Trade why aircraft noise insulation grants have hitherto been applied partly on the basis of London borough council boundaries ; and whether the current review of such grants includes reference to the needs of households within the borough of Richmond-upon-Thames.

Mr. Clinton Davis

I am writing to the hon. Member explaining the way in which the boundary of the Heathrow noise insulation grant scheme was drawn. The boundary of the scheme is naturally being considered in the current review, among other things, but I cannot prejudge the outcome at this stage.
