HC Deb 30 May 1961 vol 641 cc24-5
35. Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science what steps the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research has taken to Increase research on water pollution in Scotland.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

The Water Pollution Research Laboratory, the headquarters of which is at Stevenage, opened a branch at East Kilbride in January this year. This will enable the Laboratory to keep in closer touch with Scottish local authorities, River Purification Boards and industry, and will, in particular, help Scottish manufacturers with problems of effluent treatment.
