HC Deb 30 June 1971 vol 820 c124W
54. Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the working party established to look into the effects of possible contamination in the Severnside area by cadmium lead and zinc commenced its study; when he expects to receive its report; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Graham Page

The working party commenced its study on 10th November last. If its investigations show any need for special action to safeguard the public, this will be taken at once. In view of the complexity of the subject matter I cannot yet say when the report will be available.
