§ 41. Mr. Bowles
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he has now received a letter from the Bedworth Urban District Council, dated 3rd May, 1957, regarding the National Coal Board and dust nuisance; and what he has replied.
§ Mr. Bowles
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether that reply indicates that my constituents' furniture, 212 houses, lungs and food will cease to be covered and damaged by coal dust blown across from this coal dump?
§ Mr. Brooke
The reply indicates that the council is mistaken in thinking that Section 22 of the Clean Air Act is applicable to the matter, but it also points out that the council itself has certain powers under Part III of the Public Health Act, 1936.
