HC Deb 19 May 1975 vol 892 c220W
Mr. Weetch

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will consider providing the money needed to complete the research programme into lead contamination; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Dennis Howell

Government Departments are already supporting a range of research projects and studies relating to lead contamination. They are always ready to consider support for further projects which may improve the basis on which policy decisions can be taken.
