asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations have been received by his Department from residents of Harrietsham in the Maidstone constituency about air pollution with the chemical known as TDI.
§ Mr. Marks
No representations have been received about air pollution with the chemical known as TDI. However, a petition has been received about other forms of pollution or nuisance from a factory at Harrietsham, and planning permission for a chimney there was recently refused by Maidstone Borough Council since it was thought likely to cause pollution because of the TDI fumes that it would emit. Since the applicants might make an appeal to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment, it would clearly be improper to comment on merits at this stage.
