§ Mr. Madden
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what regulations exist concerning noise levels within the textile industry.
§ Mr. John Grant
I am informed by the Chairman of the Health and Safety Commission that there are at present no regulations on noise specifically directed to the textile industry. A document "Framing noise legislation", which includes proposals for comprehensive occupational noise legislation, was circulated for comment in November 1975. Comments have now been received and are being considered with a view to preparing draft regulations.
