HC Deb 26 May 1966 vol 729 c125W
25. Mr. Driberg

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what research is being done on the effects of diesel fumes on the health of drivers of railway engines, motor vehicles and others especially exposed to such fumes; and if he will issue a report on the results of such research.

Mr. Denis Howell

A number of studies have been carried out on the possible hazards to health of diesel fumes in confined situations. None has so far indicated any adverse effect. Reports of these studies are published in the medical and scientific journals.
