HC Deb 28 February 1967 vol 742 cc60-1W
48. Mr. Alison

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what progress has been made in eliminating the persistent foaming hazard on the River Aire in Yorkshire.

Mr. MacColl

There has been some reduction in foaming. But it appears that the problem is even more complicated than had been thought earlier and I understand that the Standing Committee on Synthetic Detergents have devoted some space to it in their Ninth Report, which my right hon. Friend expects to receive shortly.
