HC Deb 29 March 1934 vol 287 c2131

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to a large refuse tip between Walsall and Aldridge roads, Perry Barr, Birmingham; and whether, in view of the nuisance and annoyance to the neighbouring residents, he proposes to take steps to deal with the matter?


My attention has been called to this matter. I have been in communication with the city council and have also received a report from one of my inspectors after a visit to the locality. I understand the view of the corporation to be that conditions at the tip, which is not used for municipal refuse, are not such that effective action on their part would be practicable and, on the evidence submitted by the inspector, I see no sufficient reason to disagree.
