§ Mr. G. Elfed Davies
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has received from residents of the Birchgrove and Penrhiwgwynt area of Porth, Rhondda, regarding the danger from top soil deposited on the mountain above their houses; what action he is taking; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
I have received a letter from a group of residents in this area and have arranged for a deputation to be seen at the Welsh Office, Cardiff. My officials are in close touch with the Borough Council, who have obtained a preliminary report by experts, and are considering with them what further measures may need to be taken.
