HC Deb 25 November 1958 vol 596 c28W
85. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs on what date he first received a communication from the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, South, on the dangers of fluorine poisons; how many further communications he has since received from the same hon. Member; and if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of the undertakings which he has given in response to these communications.

Mr. Bevins

I cannot trace that my right hon. Friend has received any communication on this subject from the hon. Member. I find however that he communicated with my right hon. Friend's predecessors at least three times from September 1952 onwards. He was then informed that technical experts were working on the problem, to which however no simple or early remedy could be promised.
