HC Deb 19 July 1955 vol 544 cc20-1W
Mr. Ellis Smith

27, 28 and 29. asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) what steps have recently been taken to minimise air pollution throughout the country and, in particular, in the industrial areas which suffer most; what action has been taken to obtain the co-operation of the industries most responsible; and what have been the results;

(2) what action has been taken, or is proposed, as a result of the latest research on the problem of air pollution;

(3) what proposals he has for the progressive elimination of air pollution by the pottery industry, to be undertaken as modernisation of the industry goes on.

Mr. Sandys

The action already taken to reduce air pollution is fully described in the Report of the Beaver Committee published last November. I hope shortly to introduce a Bill to give effect to the Committee's principal recommendations.
