HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 c126W
123. Mr. David James

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has for bringing under statutory control waste dumping beyond territorial waters.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

I expect a Convention to control dumping in the North East Atlantic area to be concluded by the countries concerned in the very near future. We would introduce legislation to implement the Convention when Parliamentary time permits.
