HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 c514W
Major Markham

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that the old iron dump at Carter's Dump near Dun-stable now spreads over neighbouring agricultural land; and will he take steps to have it cleared in the near future?

Mr. Peat

The dump in question belongs to an iron and steel scrap merchant, the scrap being in course of preparation for delivery to the furnaces. The stock has increased during the winter months owing to black-out conditions, but the rate of clearance will now be accelerated.
