HC Deb 19 July 1977 vol 935 c470W
Mr. Lambie

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he intends to increase the sound proofing grants available to eligible householders living near Prestwick Airport by 32 per cent, to keep them in line with similar increases for Heathrow and Gatwick Airports; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Clinton Davis

As the noise insulation grants scheme at Prestwick is made by the British Airports Authority, this is a matter for the Authority. I have, however, asked the chairman to write to my hon. Friend.
