HC Deb 16 July 1953 vol 517 cc190-1W
85. Mr. Anthony Greenwood

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps he is taking to ensure that the health of persons bathing in the River Thames, near Maidenhead, is not endangered by discharge from sewage works.

Mr. Marples

As high priority as possible is being given to schemes for the improvement or reconstruction of local authorities' sewage disposal works. More than one hundred such schemes have been recently completed, are in progress or are in preparation in the Thames Catchment area.
