§ Mr. McMaster
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will sponsor a study of the environmental impact of aircraft noise in the urban area under the flight path of Glasgow airport; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Norris
I understand that Glasgow airport has undertaken to operate a noise monitoring scheme agreed with the local district council. It also produces noise contours regularly and has a local consultative committee at which noise issues are discussed. In these circumstances, I do not see a need for a study by the Department.
