HL Deb 29 January 1970 vol 307 c524WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

  1. (1) What are the penalties for polluting the environment under these headings—
    1. (a) land,
    2. (b) fresh water,
    3. (c) territorial sea,
    4. (d) air.
  2. (2) How many prosecutions and convictions under each of these headings there were last year (or in the most recent period of a year for which figures are available).
  3. (3) Whether they will publish figures showing the sentences and penalties imposed under each of these headings in that period.


Inquiries are being made, and I will write to the noble Lord as soon as possible.
