HC Deb 10 February 1960 vol 617 c58W
Mr. Jennings

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what improvement there has been in the state of pollution of the River Trent at Burton-on-Trent, as compared with the amount of pollution in 1955.

Sir K. Joseph

There has been a slight but noticeable improvement. Further and larger schemes are now in hand for extending and improving sewerage and sewage disposal works which when completed will substantially reduce pollution.
