HC Deb 19 September 1950 vol 478 cc200-1W
47. Commander Noble

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the nuisances caused by the pollution of the atmosphere by gases from the British Electricity Authority' s generation station at Battersea and by the emission of grit from the London Transport Executive' s station at Lots Road, Chelsea; and what steps he has taken to prevent these nuisances.

Mr. Blenkinsop

It is for the British Electricty Authority and London Transport Executive to take any necessary steps for this purpose: the chief alkali inspector visits the Battersea station at the request of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Fuel and Power and his last visit was paid on 3rd August. I understand that steps are being taken to bring into operation additional gas washing plant at Battersea and that at Lots Road additonal grit-arrestment plant, which should make grit emission negligible, is nearly complete.

Forward to
