HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 c312W
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.
