HC Deb 10 December 1968 vol 775 cc72-3W
57. Miss Lestor

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will seek powers to compel manufacturers of synthetic detergents not to include in their products any chemicals which will affect the proper functioning of waste water treatment plants.

Mr. K. Robinson

No. I am satisfied that the manufacturers are observing their undertaking to include in domestic detergents sold in this country only materials capable of being dealt with satisfactorily by such plants.
