HC Deb 03 August 1962 vol 664 cc170-1W
Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he is aware that many residents in Leicester are experiencing and have for many years experienced hardship by grit falling on and in their homes owing to emissions from the local power station, and that this week this hardship was greatly increased; and whether he will take steps to abate the nuisance.

Mr. Corfield

The Alkali Inspectorate will go on doing its best to secure a reduction in the grit and dust emissions from this power station. On the 30th July a mishap caused a short but serious emission of black pulverised fuel. I understand that the Electricity Board has offered to meet the cleaning bills of residents affected.
