In the International Year of Sound, the Institute of Acoustics recently brought up the importance of acoustics in Parliament on 24th February 2020 in a wide ranging debate held by the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee, the oldest such committee formed in 1939.
This led to excellent discussion with requests from the committee for follow up information.
There were three speakers from the Institute giving 15 minute presentations each to members, which included members of both houses. Biographies of speakers and the program can be seen below. Peter Rogers of Sustainable Acoustics was closely involved as IOA representative on the P&SC.
