asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether, in view of numerous complaints by the local inhabitants of the serious emission by the Greenwich power station of the London Transport Executive, and of the danger to their eyes and nuisance to the children in the nearby school in Old Woolwich Road, he will take steps to see that this power station is supplied with better quality coal in order that grit emission may be reduced and the conditions made more comfortable for the people in that district.

The emission of grit at power stations is not necessarily attributable to the quality of coal consumed, but I am arranging for an investigation to he made by an expert of my Department to see what can be done to reduce any cause for complaint.
