HC Deb 30 June 1964 vol 697 cc201-2W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that oil discharged from ships, which pollutes Great Britain's shores and bathing places could, if retained in the ships and purified there, be used as creosote for constructional purposes; and if he will sponsor scientific investigations to that purpose.

Mr. Marples

No, but if the hon. and learned Member has any information on this subject, I hope he will let me know.
