HC Deb 20 January 1959 vol 598 c14W
67. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs in how many instances in which his approval has been sought to create smokeless zones he has caused an inquiry to be made to ascertain that the supply of smokeless fuel would be adequate for the need; and in how many instances he has withheld approval because of inadequate supplies.

Mr. Bevins

Inquiries are made in every case. In no instance has my right hon. Friend had to withhold approval.
