HC Deb 05 March 1957 vol 566 cc26-7W
76. Mr. Sydney Irving

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what progress has been made with the installation of electrostatic precipitators at Bevan's Works, Swanscombe, which he announced on 3rd November, 1955, was to be undertaken.

Mr. H. Brooke

The precipitators have been ordered, but their installation entails major alterations to the works, including the resiting of the slurry tanks and the erection of a 350 ft. chimney. Preparations for all this are now at an advanced stage.
