HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c116W
95. Mr. Boyle

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government on what grounds the Salford City Council have been refused permission to extend their system of smokeless zones; and if the matter can be reconsidered.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend has decided not to confirm the Salford Smokeless Zones Order after a public local inquiry and having regard to practical difficulties in connection with the conversion of existing means of heating. He cannot reconsider the matter at present.
