HC Deb 14 July 1970 vol 803 c158W
43. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what action he will take to stop as a matter of urgency the pollution of the River Tees.

Mr. Graham Page

This is primarily a matter for the river authority, but no significant improvement can be expected without major works, such as those at present being investigated by Teesside County Borough Council.
