HC Deb 16 July 1964 vol 698 c285W
Mr. W. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what action he has taken, or proposes to take, on the progress reports of the Standing Technical Committee on Synthetic Detergents.

Mr. Corfield

The work of the Committee has brought about a great increase in the use of detergent material that is easily broken down in sewage purification. The action called for in the last report of the Committee was the testing of the commercial feasibility of certain new materials. I understand that these tests are being carried out.
