§ 25. Captain CUNNINGHAM-REID
asked the Minister of Health whether the Government have yet begun to pre pare a River Pollution Prevention Bill; whether it is hoped that such a Bill will prove to be non-controversial; and when it is proposed to be introduced?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
My right hon. Friend presumes my hon. and gallant Friend's reference is to a Bill to provide for the reception of trade effluents into sewers. The state of Parliamentary business precludes any Measure this Session, but my right hon. Friend has in mind the case for such a Measure and, while he cannot say that it would be without controversy, he hopes that the negotiations which have taken place will result in substantial agreement.
