§ 40. Mr. Nabarro
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is yet in a position to announce the names of the Committee to be established by his Department for investigating problems arising from smoke pollution of the atmosphere; and what special representation is being arranged for Scotland.
§ Mr. Marples
No, but my right hon. Friend hopes to do so shortly. He is in close touch with his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
Will the terms of reference of this Committee include a request for a report on all measures necessary to ensure that local authorities and all householders will install efficient solid-fuel appliances which consume all the fuel and prevent smoke?
§ Mr. Hastings
Will the Minister consider pollution not only by smoke but by noxious gases, the result of a combination of coal and other fuels?
