§ 18. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the Minister of Health what inquiries he has now made as to the danger to health involved to bathers in the river Thames by the pollution of that river; and whether he can give an assurance that no danger to health is involved in bathing at any point above Teddington lock.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Does that answer mean that the right hon. Gentleman can assure the people concerned that there is no point on the river at which it is dangerous to health to bathe?
§ Mr. R. S. Hudson
Is it not the case that the effluent from works in Slough, for example, is still grossly contaminating the river above Eton?
