asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is yet in a position to publish the findings of the Property Services Agency inquiry into noise levels emanating from Inchterf Proof and Experimental Establishment; and what money has been allocated to deaden noise at source.

The technical report on the possibilities of noise abatement at the Proof and Experimental Establishment at Inchterf is not yet complete. I hope it will be available within a matter of weeks rather than months. I fully appreciate the importance of the matter to the hon. Member and her constituents and, as already promised, will write to her as soon as I am able to send her a copy of the report or of its main findings and conclusions.It would not be practicable to allocate particular sums of money for noise abatement measures at Inchterf until it is known what measures would be feasible and worth while and what they would be likely to cost.
