HC Deb 13 May 1957 vol 570 cc7-8W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will give an assurance that the problem created by the presence of cement dust in the air in certain districts will be considered in future Government legislation connected with the provision of clean air,

Mr. EL Brooke

I do not think further legislation is needed, as cement works in England and Wales are already controlled under the Alkali, &c. Works Regulation Act, 1906, and my alkali inspectors are responsible for ensuring that the best practicable means are employed to minimise the emission of dust.
