HC Deb 05 May 1943 vol 389 c184W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that in Mersea Island there are dumps of scrap metal which have been lying there for over two years; that the failure to collect this metal is discouraging the collection of further scrap in the district; and what steps he is taking to collect it?

Sir A. Duncan

I am informed that the local authority's dump was cleared by the Ministry of Works in December last and that another clearance will be made shortly. I am not aware of other dumps on Mersea Island, but if my hon. Friend will give me particulars I will make inquiries.
