HC Deb 05 November 1992 vol 213 c367W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will issue new guidelines on neighbour noise to local authorities.

Mr. Maclean

Part III of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 contains provisions for controlling statutory nuisances, including noise. In September, my Department and the Home Office issued joint guidance to local authorities and the police on the control of noise from parties.
