HC Deb 28 June 1979 vol 969 c287W
Mr. Watson

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is satisfied with the present regulations regarding permitted levels of noise emitted from motor cycle exhausts or whether he is planning any change in the near future.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

We propose to introduce stricter noise limits for new motor cycles in accordance with an EEC directive adopted last year. Interested bodies will shortly be consulted.
