HC Deb 26 October 1972 vol 843 c425W
Mr. James Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is satisfied that the planning Act as it stands is sufficient to deal with environmental pollution; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I refer to my reply to the hon. Member for Midlothian (Mr. Eadie) on 25th October. The powers available to deal with pollution are not wholly in the Town and Country Planning Act; and, for example, there are important relevant powers under river purification and clean air legislation.—[Vol. 843, c.294.]
