§ Mr. James Hill
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether 79W he will introduce legislation to bring the dumping of wastes at sea by British ships under statutory control.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
Her Majesty's Government are participating in the formulation of a convention which would regulate dumping in the North-East Atlantic. When an agreement has been concluded we shall consider what measures are necessary in order to apply it to British vessels.
