asked the Minister of Transport what consultations he has had with professional institutions and other bodies concerned with a view to ensuring that the proposed regulations for defining excessive noise from road vehicles will be effective; and whether he will provide opportunity for their consideration by independent experts before any such regulations are finally settled.

They are based on work carried out partly by a Committee of the British Standards Institution representative of most of those concerned and partly by my Department in conjunction with the National Physical Laboratory and Motor Industry Research Association. The motor manufacturers have co-operated.
