41. Air Commodore Harvey
asked the Minister of Transport what steps he is taking to deal with oil pollution in the Solent.
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth, South (Sir J. Lucas), and my hon. Friend the Member for the Isle of Wight (Sir P. Macdonald) on 12th May and also to my reply to the debate on the Adjournment on 16th May.

In the meantime, has my hon. Friend issued any instructions on this important matter direct to the oil companies?
