HC Deb 31 July 1956 vol 557 cc110-1W
82. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware of the emission of fumes from the burning slag-heap at Baddesley Colliery in the Warwickshire coalfield; and whether he will take steps to secure the abatement of this nuisance.

Mr. Sandys

Yes. I have no statutory responsibility in this matter, but at the request of the local authority concerned one of my inspectors has made an investigation and has suggested remedial measures.
