HC Deb 19 March 1958 vol 584 cc134-5W
38. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in view of the potential danger from the discharge of untreated sewage in public places, and the solution of this problem achieved as regards air travel, he will set up a special committee to inquire into improvements in lavatory services in long distance trains.

Mr. Nugent

No. This is a matter for the British Transport Commission which has recently had the whole question of track pollution investigated by a committee of experts. The Commission is now considering certain modifications in existing methods which the committee recommended.
