§ VISCOUNT THURSO
asked Her Majesty's Government:
In view of the warnings, subscribed to by such a large body of eminent scientists in the recently published edition of Ecology, entitled Blueprint for Survival, what steps are being taken to investigate the grave dangers against which the document warns and what measures are being taken by Her Majesty's Government to deal with any of them.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE, DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT (LORD SANDFORD)
My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for the Environment, has had a discussion with the authors of the ECOLOGIST report. The important issues raised by their article are under study. Much relevant work is already in hand, and this will continue.
