§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he has taken or intends taking on the progress statement of the Backsyphonage Committee report issued in April; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
The purpose of the statement was to provide a background against which interested bodies might make their views known to the Committee. Forty-one bodies have submitted comments which the committee are considering and I understand that they now expect to report in about a year's time.
