HC Deb 06 June 1957 vol 571 cc136-7W
Mr. N. McLean

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that the new housing scheme at present under construction by the Inverness County Council and nearing completion in Beauly has, up until now, had no provision made either for a septic tank or any other treatment of sewage discharging into the Beauly river; and, in view of this, if he will consider the desirability of making an order to bring the Beauly area within the scope of the Rivers (Prevention of Pollution) (Scotland) Act, 1951

Mr. Maclay

I have asked the county council to provide treatment for the sewage discharged from the housing scheme concerned before the houses come into occupation; an order applying the Act of 1951 to the Beauty area is not necessary for this purpose
