§ Mr. Patrick Maitland
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the County of Lanark is represented on the Scottish Advisory Committee to consider problems affecting the Rivers (Prevention of Pollution) (Scotland) Act, 1951; and what other counties are represented.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
No county is specifically represented on the Advisory Committee. As required by the Statute, persons were appointed, after consultation with interested bodies, to represent local authorities, agriculture, fisheries, industry and other interests. Those consulted included the Association of County Councils in Scotland.
