§ Mr. Tinker
asked the Minister of Health whether his inspectors have reported any 1409W diminution in the number and extent of burning pit-heaps; and what steps his Department have taken with colliery owners to deal with them?
§ Mr. Elliot:
My Chief Alkali Inspector has reported some improvement in the pit-heads visited last year and details are given in his annual report shortly to be published. As regards the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to his earlier question to-day.
