§ 30. Sir W. Wakefield
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will make a statement on the results of the dropping of plastic drift cards, in connection with the collection of information on sea pollution by oil.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The experiment that is being undertaken necessarily comprises several droppings of plastic drift cards throughout the year and it would be premature to make a statement now. I understand that it will be some time before the results of even the first dropping in January last can be assessed.
