HC Deb 28 July 1938 vol 338 c3295
59. Mr. Collindridge

asked the Minister of Health whether he has now received reports from his inspectors on burning pit heaps and, in particular, on those which menace the health of the people of Barnsley; and what action he proposes to take to abate the nuisance?

Mr. Elliot

I have received reports relating to two pit heaps in Barnsley. Suggestions for remedial action have been made by the inspector to the colliery company concerned, and the inspector is keeping in touch with the company for the purpose of taking such further action as may prove necessary.
