asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, in view of the United Kingdom's signature of the Long Range Transboundary Air Pollution Convention, whether he proposes a special regime for the London Brick Company to diminish the emission of sulphur dioxide and fluorine, both in Bedfordshire and Peterborough.

Friend in the answer I gave him on 21 February 1980β€”[Vol. 979, c. 302–3]β€”the United Kingdom does not propose to recommend that any specific measures be taken until all the information generated through the Long Range Transboundary Air Pollution Convention has been fully assessed and a need substantiated. This applies to the London Brick Company as to other industrial bodies.
