HC Deb 27 January 1971 vol 810 cc126-7W
86. Mr. Turton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he is taking to prevent the pollution of residential areas by smells emanating from offal recovery plants; and whether he is satisfied that existing legislation is effective for preventing or terminating such nuisance.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

The local authorities already have ample powers under the Public Health and Town and Country Planning Acts to deal with this problem.
