John Biggs AM: I should start by saying that although the Assembly is unanimous in taking the view that Heathrow presents all sorts of problems, we are not necessarily unanimous on the conclusions that flow from that.
I am very interested in this issue of noise. There is a health warning here, which is that scientists can measure it but the individual experience of it seems to vary from person to person and from time of day to time of day as well, so we need to be very clear about that and how people find it offensive.
In your report, you say, “The Government should facilitate moves by industry to redesign airspace within the London area”. Do you see that as a way of facilitating a reduction in the number of people affected by noise?
