HC Deb 11 December 1968 vol 775 c158W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Technology what recent discussions he has had with the Shell Centre about research techniques and work being carried out at Thornton Research Centre designed to identify different sources of oil pollution off Great Britain's sea beaches and methods of protecting and cleansing the beaches; and what steps he is taking to assist in this work.
