§ Mr. Maxwell
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will instruct the Alkali Inspectorate to hold further consultations with the brick industry with a view to reducing the air pollution nuisance.
§ Mr. Mellish
I assume that my hon. Friend has primarily in mind pollution from the fletton brick industry. The Chief Alkali Inspector designate has just visited the area concerned in order to reassess the pollution problem at first hand.
