HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 cc25-6W
Mr. Awdry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress is being made on the draft report relating to the operation of sanitary installations along certain stretches of trunk roads; and why this report has not yet been completed in view of the fact that the scheme was sponsored over five years ago.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

The pilot scheme financed as to two-thirds by local authorities and one-third by the Government was slow to get going and the installations were not completed until 1969. A report on the experiment is still under consideration in order to decide whether the scheme should be continued and expanded.
