§ Lord TREFGARNE
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will list the types of aircraft presently on the British register which do not comply with ICAO Annex 16 noise requirements.
The following types of subsonic jet presently on the British register do not comply with ICAO Annex 16 noise requirements:
- 737 (Some variants might be entitled to noise certification)
- 747 (most of these are noise certificated)
British Aircraft Corporation
- Mystere 20/Falcon
- Gulfstream II
- HS-125 (except the -600 and -700 series)
It is not practicable to list all the types of propeller driven aircraft on the British register which do not comply with these standards. There are no ICAO noise standards for supersonic jet aircraft or for helicopters.
