HC Deb 20 December 1934 vol 296 c1352W

asked the Minister of Health if his expert officers have inspected the Brighton system of disposal of refuse by incineration in trenches and have given him any estimate as to its claim for efficiency, amenity and economy?


The system referred to, known as the "Feoenix." has been inspected twice by my officers, in 1926 and in 1933. No local authority has so far applied for my sanction to a loan for installing the system. If a local authority should apply for my sanction, I should form my judgment on the application in relation to the needs and circumstances of the particular authority: but I could not with advantage form a judgment unrelated to actual circumstances.
