§ Mr. HERRIOTTS
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the menace to health of the residents at Haverton-Hill-on-Tees caused by the emission of grit and soot from the works of the Synthetic Ammonia and Nitrates Company at Billingham, due to the use of pulverised fuel without adequate apparatus for dealing with the grit; and whether he will cause an inquiry to be made into the matter?634W
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I am aware of the complaints which have been made of the emission of grit and soot from these works. The company are taking measures in the matter, which is receiving the close attention of my inspectors.
