HC Deb 13 February 1967 vol 741 c19W
101. Mr. John Lee

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will investigate atmosphere pollution occasioned by gas effluent emanating from domestic gas plants.

Mr. Mellish

Gas effluent from plants producing gas for domestic purposes is controlled under the Alkali &c. Works Regulation Act 1906; plants are inspected regularly by the Alkali Inspectors to ensure that the best practicable means are employed for minimising the emissions, and rendering them harmless and inoffensive.
