My right hon. Friend recently asked the principal local authorities on the coast for information about their sewage disposal arrangements and their plans for improvement, with estimates of cost. I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT a summary of the replies.

Coastal authorities are, in general, alive to their responsibilities in this matter, but my right hon. Friend is studying the returns and considering what further action to take.
