§ Major Markham
asked the Minister of Health how many times during the last seven years complaints have been made to his Department or to the local authorities concerned about smoke and other atmospheric pollution emanating from the chemical factory at Deanshanger, Northamptonshire; whether he is aware that the nuisance continues unabated; and whether he proposes to take any steps to get the firm in question to adopt smoke abatement appliances.
§ Mr. Hamilton Kerr
My right hon. Friend is not aware of any complaints, but he is making inquiries by local visit and will write to my hon. Friend. If he would care to associate himself with the visit, my right hon. Friend would be happy to arrange this.
