asked the Minister of Health whether he has yet been informed of the proposal of the Hammersmith Borough Council to dispose of refuse at Mucking, in the rural district of Orsett; and what action he. proposes to take in the matter?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I am informed by the borough council that they have recently entered into a new contract for the disposal of the refuse of the borough at Mucking by adequate layering in accordance with any regulations in force relating to the deposit of refuse on the land. It is within the discretion of the council to enter into such a, contract and, as matters stand, I have no power to intervene.
