Yes, Sir. At the invitation of the Ministry of Works and Buildings, the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research has undertaken a preliminary inquiry into the heating and ventilation of post-war buildings, in which regard has been paid to the causes and effects of atmospheric pollution. That Department is now setting up at the request of my noble Friend a full Committee of experts to make definitive report, and all important interests affected will be included in the investigations.

Is the report likely to be issued at an early date?

The report itself is being drawn up, and they have been studying it now for over seven months. The Committee is now putting it into its final shape, but I could not say how soon it will be ready.
