A correspondent has pointed out to us that we were

unfair to Bradford last week in implying that it is a typically smoky place. He reminds us that Bradford has taken a good deal of trouble to get rid of smoke, has of its own volition obtained a special Act, and compares favourably with other Yorkshire towns. Coatbridge (which we also mentioned), on the other hand, actually took steps to be exempted from the general Act. * * * *
