HC Deb 11 May 1972 vol 836 cc413-4W
51. Mr. Joel Bsrnett

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will seek to amend the Trade Description Act to make it £ specific offence for a water authority to supply dirty water.

Mr. Noble:

No. There is already a statutory obligation on local authorities to provide or secure a wholesome supply of water within their districts.
