§ 67. Rear-Admiral BEAMISH
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the recommendation of the Joint Advisory Committee on River Pollution to remind county councils and county borough councils of the power of any one of them to set up a rivers board to control the whole length of a river, including its tributaries, has been carried into effect; and whether any applications for the establishment of river boards have been received?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
I have been asked to reply to this question. On the 21st September last my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health issued a Circular to local authorities drawing attention to the recommendation of the Joint Advisory Committee. Up to the present time one application has been received.
