HC Deb 13 May 1948 vol 450 c2267
24. Mr. George Thomas

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the nuisance caused to householders in the Victoria Park area of Cardiff by the grit emission from the Ely Paper Works; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Bevan

Yes, Sir. I understand that the conditions are caused by defects which have appeared in the grit arresting plant, and that temporary repairs will be made when the factory is closed at Whit-sun and more permanent repairs during the August recess.

Mr. Thomas

While thanking my right hon. Friend for his reply, may I express the hope that he will keep in close touch with his Department about this matter? Is he aware that I raised this question with them a long time ago and apparently they have forgotten all about it, and will he keep in touch with them to ensure that the work is done?
