HC Deb 16 November 1971 vol 826 cc78-9W
Mr. James Hill

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether 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.
