§ 7. Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has now reached any conclusions in regard to further legislation upon the subject of the harmful discharge of fluorine fumes from factories in Scotland.
§ Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton
Does not the right hon. Gentleman think it is an anomaly that Scotland is not treated on the same basis as England and afforded the same protection as England?
The noble Lord must appreciate that there are many respects in which legislation differs as between Scotland and England, and not always, I would suggest, to the detriment of Scotland.
§ Colonel Gomme-Duncan
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider persuading his colleagues to introduce quickly legislation dealing with this very serious menace, because that is what it certainly is, as I am sure he will appreciate?
§ Major McCallum
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that fluorine fumes are almost the same in England as they are in Scotland.
