asked the Secretary of State for Defence what recommendations he is in a position to make in relation to Property Services Agency reports on noise abatement at source level of proof and experimental establishments such as Inchterf, Kilsyth.

Inchterf is the only proof and experimental establishment for which the Property Services Agency is conducting a study of the possibilities of noise reduction. As I inforced the hon. Member last week, I hope that the technical report will be available within a matter of weeks. When it is, I will send her either a copy of it or a summary of its main findings and conclusions.Before any recommendations can be made on the basis of the technical study, it will be necessary to consider the practicability of its findings in relation to the operational functioning of the establishment and how worth while the measures would be in relation to their likely cost.
