HC Deb 30 July 1962 vol 664 cc29-30W
105. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will take powers to enable experiments to be made during the works' holidays by a method of reducing air pollution by the use of stainless steel umbrellas together with a curtain of electronically-controlled equipment, which has proved such a success in reducing air pollution in Trafford Park, Manchester; if he will arrange for such experiments to be carried out in the City of Stoke-on-Trent, Salford, and Trafford Park; and what further plans he has to effect the maximum reduction possible of air pollution.

Mr. Corfield

I am advised that experiments are unnecessary, as this device is already being widely and successfully used in works for which it is suitable. As regards the last part of the Question I would refer the hon. Member to the reply made to a question by him on the 19th July, and to the Chief Alkali Inspector's annual report for 1961, a copy of which I am sending the hon. Member.

Forward to
