HC Deb 18 September 1959 vol 610 cc184-5W
Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what improvements he has been able to effect at Whitebirk Power Station, in order to overcome nuisance to neighbouring property by fumes, grit and dust.

Mr. H. Brooke

Investigations are now being made into sources of dust in the locality. When the results are available, the district alkali inspector will consider whether further measures are needed at the power station to reduce dust emission. Investigations are also proceeding into the possibility of limiting the extent of the chimney plume.
