HC Deb 20 January 1949 vol 460 cc47-8W
48. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will procure and publish the available evidence in respect of experiments made in recent years in America and Australia to discover whether buildings can be satisfactorily protected against the effects of harmful and noxious fumes emitted from oil-burning plants such as that proposed for the Bankside Power Station.

Mr. H. Morrison

I am not certain to which particular experiments my hon. Friend refers, and I should be glad to receive further details. I do not accept the implication that the proposed oil-burning plant for the Bankside Power Station will emit harmful and noxious fumes: my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Fuel and Power stated on 18th November, 1948, that the Government's technical advisers are satisfied that harmful sulphur fumes can be effectively eliminated.
