§ Mr. Michael Brown (Brigg and Cleethorpes)
I wish to present a petition from Mr. Victor Smith and Mr. Morris Evans, residents of the town of Immingham in the borough of Cleethorpes. The petition is signed by 2,516 of my constituents and it relates to the pollution in the area around the town.
The prayer of the petitioners reads as follows:Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House gives all district and borough councils greater powers to control the companies responsible for causing pollution, that it revises the General Development Order under which these companies operate in order that more control can be exercised over their activities by the local authority and that it revises the Environmental Protection Act to further strengthen the powers of the Health Authority over such matters.And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
§ To lie upon the Table.
