§ Mr. Gregory
asked the Minister of Power (1) what arrangements are in hand to meet the requirements of household smokeless fuels in the Stockport and North-East Cheshire area for the winter months;
(2) what arrangements are in hand to provide adequate stocks of smokeless fuels to meet the requirements of the Stockport and North-East Cheshire area and the provisions of the Clean Air Act; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeson
Supplies and stocks of smokeless fuels in particular localities are matters for the producers and distributors. Local authorities consult producers and distributors before the relevant provisions of the Clean Air Act are applied locally.
