§ Dr. Winstanley
asked the Minister of Aviation if he will extend the scheme for grants to householders to meet the cost of soundproofing, announced on 10th March 1965, to householders in the neighbourhood of Manchester Airport, Ringway.
§ Mr. Mulley
No. The powers conferred by the Airports Authority Act 1965, under which the present scheme is made, apply only to dwellings near aerodromes owned or managed by the British Airports Authority who bear the cost of the grants.
