§ Dr. A. Thompson
asked the Minister of Health, in view of the fact that nearly 30,000 people die annually in Britain from chronic bronchitis, a large proportion of this number in the winter months, what plans he is making to safeguard the vulnerable sections of the population from the effects of smog and air pollution in the coming winter.
§ Mr. Braine
Smog warnings with appropriate health advice will be issued if necessary. Masks can be prescribed for those suffering from chronic bronchitis who have to go out.
