A SUFFOLK council wants a ban on the transport by road of methyl isocyanate, the type of chemical which caused more than 2,000 deaths in Bhopal, India.
The chemical, used in the manufacture of herbicide, is shipped through Felixstowe port and taken by road through Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds to the Ciba Geigy plant in Grimsby.
Now Ipswich borough councillors have called for a halt to the shipments and say they will back any other councils who take the same stand.
Each shipment consists of about 34 stainless steel 45-gal drums and it is believed that two shipments a year are made through Felixstowe.
