§ 137. Mr. Reader Harris
asked the Minister of Aviation, when he intends to make regulations under the Airports Authority Act, 1965, bringing into force those Sections of the Act providing for Government assistance to householders making their homes less susceptible to noise from aircraft.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
I intend to make a scheme under Section 15 of the Act requiring the British Airports Authority to pay grants on the fines indicated in my announcement of 10th March, 1965 in respect of dwellings near London (Heathrow) Airport, shortly after 1st April, 1966. This is the date on which Heathrow will vest in the Airports Authority and I am advised that I have no power to make a scheme before then.
