Science and Industry In Clean Air Talks

March 22, 1906 ·

Government Scientists have held a series of emergency meetings with British Industrialists, in a bid to solve the current pollution problem.

It is hoped that a solution will be found to help ‘clear the air’ of the yellow fog that has now spread across the whole country. Industrialists have pledged to use the special dispensation granted to travel during the curfew to test alternative fuels and find ways of cutting pollution levels.

A spokesman for the Department for the Advancement of Sciences claimed that a consortium made up of the best minds in the field were working on a device to tackle the problem, but when asked how close they were to finding a solution, he admitted that they were still “far off” from conducting any tests.

The news comes a day after the government imposed a dusk till dawn curfew, to stem the outbreak of lawlessness across the country.

Latest reports claim that one hundred and fifty people were arrested last night for breaking the curfew, with thousands more cautioned.

The police now claim that there are certain parts of  London’s East End now deemed to be ‘No-Go’ areas in the control of criminal gangs, and they haven’t got the resources to tackle the problem.

Don’t forget the curfew runs from 6pm – 8am.
