HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 c486
36. Mr. Gordon Macdonald

asked the Minister of Health on what date the last inspection was made of the burning pit- heap at the Garswood Hall Collieries Company, Limited, Bryn, near Wigan; whether he is aware that it is as big a nuisance as ever; and whether he will have immediate steps taken to bring about an abatement of this nuisance?

Mr. Bernays

The last inspection was made on 29th March. Works are under construction to enable the heap to be attacked with water which should produce good results.
