HC Deb 05 April 1995 vol 257 cc1120-1W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what information he has on the sources of carbon fibre pollution in Wales. [17511]

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Carbon fibre is an inorganic material used in the manufacture of a wide range of products including aircraft, high-performance cars and sports equipment. It is normally used, in small quantities, as a strengthening material. The World Health Organisation has indicated that the potential health risk from carbon fibre pollution in the general environment is very low.
