HC Deb 22 July 1929 vol 230 cc938-9W

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the continued pollution of the River Gipping at Stowmarket; and will he take steps immediately to prevent further pollution, in view of the nuisance to those who live on the river's banks between Stowmarket and Ipswich and to those whose daily work is in the mills on the river, and of the consequences that affect those farmers whose stock waters from the river?


I have received further complaints. An action touching the state of this river is pending in the High Court and, while this is so, it would not be proper for me to take further steps in the matter under the Rivers Pollution Prevention Act.
