To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S4W-28385 by Maureen Watt on 23 November 2015, whether it will undertake a review (a) of the literature on research concerning the clinical effects of exposure to low frequency noise and (b) into the particular risk of vibroacoustic disease for people who work in the maritime industry to assist medical practitioners in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease.


Answered by Maureen Watt (13/01/2016):

The Scottish Government receives expert evidence-based advice on this issue from Health Protection Scotland, our national health protection experts, and also from Public Health England. Both organisations also draw on the advice of expert subject-specific committees. There are currently no plans to review the literature on this.
