HC Deb 19 June 1974 vol 875 c188W
38. Miss Boothroyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will supply statistics on industrial pollution in Wednesbury, West Bromwich and Tipton; and how these statistics compare with the country as a whole.

Mr. Denis Howell

The only figures available on national trends in industrial pollution are contained in the National Survey of Smoke and Sulphur Dioxide and the River Pollution Survey, information on which I shall be happy to send to my hon. Friend. More detailed local information should be sought from local and river authorities concerned.
