HC Deb 29 January 1962 vol 652 cc56-7W
68. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Power if he is aware of the inability of Newcastle-under-Lyme citizens to comply with the smoke control order in their area because of the lack of smokeless fuel; and what action is being taken by his Department to facilitate the implementation of the Clean Air Act in this respect.

Mr. Wood

There are ample supplies of Gloco. I understand that in the short time the Order has been in operation the demand for the more expensive premium fuels has been slight but producers could, without undue delay, supply merchants with additional quantities, if needed.
