Sir John Stanley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will adopt a discretionary policy of providing noise barriers on motorways that were opened to traffic after 17 October 1969. [5134]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The current policy is aimed at reducing the adverse effects that road construction or improvement would have on the surrounding area and applying similar principles to those roads which were built before the operative date specified in the Land Compensation Act.
