HC Deb 14 February 1956 vol 548 c240W
56. Mr. Mayhew

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government the reasons for the unexpected delay in completing and publishing the report of the Pippard Committee on Thames River Pollution.

Mr. Sandys

The reason is that the investigations and studies which are being carried out by the Water Pollution Research Laboratory have proved more complicated than was originally anticipated.
