HC Deb 05 February 1963 vol 671 cc28-9W
39. Mr. Sydney Irving

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if, in future, he will give the ratios of dust emitted to clinker produced at each of the cement plants on Thames-side to local authorities in the area at the shortest practicable intervals for each plant.

Mr. Corfield

It is not the practice to reveal the results of tests of dust and other emissions taken at individual works which are controlled under the Alkali Act. My right hon. Friend is, however, arranging that the Chief Alkali Inspector will, in future, include average figures for Thames-side cement works in his annual reports which are presented to Parliament.
