HC Deb 31 March 1927 vol 204 cc1405-6
39. Lieut.-Colonel HOWARD-BURY

asked the Minister of Health when he will be prepared to give a decision on the application of the Essex County Council for leave to take proceedings in reference to the alleged pollution of the River Chelmer by the Felstead sugar-beet factory?


I hope to give an early decision in this case. I understand that the factory is at present closed down and that the company have expressed their willingness to carry out recommendations made by an expert called in to investigate conditions at factories of this kind.
