asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if, in view of the recently published report of Dr. Richard Scorer of the Imperial College of Science and Technology, on the subject of atmospheric pollution, a copy of which is in the possession of his Department, he is prepared to make a statement on the action being taken in this matter.

My right hon. Friend understands that the publication is being studied by the Committee on Air Pollution.

Will my hon. Friend urge my right hon. Friend to ask this Committee to hurry its deliberations? In view of the fact that the findings of this Report show that the citizens of London are being slowly poisoned it would be an advantage if we could have the findings of the Committee published soon.

My right hon. Friend realises that it is an important subject, especially to Londoners, but I think that the speed of the Committee's deliberations really must rest with the Committee.
