Helicopter Noise

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the answer of 5 December 2006, Official Report, column 230W, on helicopter noise, what the conclusions were of the meeting held with representatives of the London Assembly’s Environmental Committee to discuss the recommendations in the committee’s report, “London in a spin—A review of helicopter noise”; and if he will make a statement. (116239)

I held a very constructive and productive meeting with representatives of the London Assembly’s Environment Committee. We agreed on two key priorities which were the improvement of data collection with a central database and a clear complaints procedure for the public. The Department will be taking these issues forward in dialogue with the Civil Aviation Authority, National Air Traffic Services and the Committee.
