HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 c266W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in what circumstances his Department advises local authorities applying for loan sanction for sewage purification plants to pump their sewage into the sea where this is possible.

Mr. Peter Walker

I would only ask such local authorities to reconsider their proposals so that their decision reduces to the minimum hazards to public health and amenity.
