§ 64. Mr. Conlan
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will take steps to ensure the discontinuance of the use of the pipe processing plant at the factory of Wailes Dove (Bitumastic) Limited, Pelaw-on-Tyne, because of the nuisance being caused to surrounding residential property.
§ Mr. Mellish
No. I understand that the new equipment which I mentioned to my hon. Friend when he came to see me in the House on 23rd February has been 245W installed and will be tried out this week. This is expected to improve conditions. I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as the Department's Alkali Inspector has been able to assess the results.
