Answered By: 
The Mayor

In response to question MQ3600 / 2009 I agreed to write to the Secretary of State for Transport requesting that he commission a full review of the impact of helicopter noise in London. In that letter I am also happy to also encourage him to set up a working group with the Civil Aviation Authority, affected local authorities and appropriate stakeholder groups.
