HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 c295W
Mr. Viggers

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied that the spread of seaweed in the Solent and Spithead areas can be effectively contained; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Denis Howell

I would prefer not to express an opinion until I have had the opportunity to study the report being prepared by a local working party to which I referred in my reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Itchen (Mr. Mitchell) on 25th July 1974.
