HC Deb 26 July 1960 vol 627 cc113-4W
74. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will intro- duce legislation to give him greater powers to deal with air pollution caused by ironworks and other such industrial undertakings.

Sir K. Joseph

The Alkali Inspectorate and the local authorities have adequate powers. Improvement depends principally on technical advances, study of which continues.
