HC Deb 26 May 1938 vol 336 cc1408-9W
Mr. Tinker

asked the Minister of Health whether his inspectors have reported any 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.
