§ 37. Mr. Greenway
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will extend the conditions under which householders affected by road works or heavy road traffic can claim double glazing; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
I am aware of concern that the present noise insulation regulations, which broadly apply only to dwellings directly affected by noise from new or altered roads, do not go wide enough. A report on a review of the regulations is being prepared for me and I shall consider very carefully any recommendations for their extension.
