HC Deb 01 February 1982 vol 17 c6W
36. Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what action he intends to take to reduce aircraft noise around Heathrow in 1982 and ensuing years.

Mr. Sproat

We shall continue to encourage the development and introduction into commercial service of quieter aircraft and to maintain the wide range of controls designed to ensure that aircraft are operated in such a way as to minimise disturbance.
