HC Deb 01 May 1972 vol 836 cc1-2W
16. Mr. Ifor Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what plans have been prepared to protect the Gower coast from oil pollution; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gibson-Watt:

The Gower Rural District Council fully participates in Glamorgan County Council's oil pollution contingency scheme and there are Government contingency plans for the storage of dispersants and equipment and the earmarking of sea-going vessels for hire at strategic points to deal with oil at sea which may threaten the coast.
