§ 109. Mr. Nabarro
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that the underground gasification trials in the parishes of Bayton and Rock, Worcestershire, being conducted by the chief scientist's division of his Department, are causing severe pollution of the district with sulphurous fumes; what steps his staff are taking to alleviate this nuisance; and what instructions the chief scientist of his Department has given to the staff operating the underground gasification plant to conform with a policy of clean air.
§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
Some air pollution has unavoidably resulted from the scientific requirements of these trials, but everything possible has been done to keep it to a minimum.
