HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 cc230-1W
Mr. William Price

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is satisfied with the level of dust emission from the Rugby Portland Cement Company premises in Rugby; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Greenwood

I am not satisfied, but everything at present practicable is being done. The new kiln, which is now settling down normally, will continue to be kept under close observation by the Alkali Inspectorate. In addition, the company is taking steps towards improving the performance of two of the other kilns. Bag filter units are being fitted to the cement storage silos, dust arrestment on clinker cooling is being made more efficient, and raw materials are to be conveyed further into the site.
