HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 c448W
35. Mr. George Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is satisfied with the co-ordination of the activities of the Factory Inspectorate with Thames Water Authority and other relevant authorities in the matter of Chromate pollution from the factory premises of Torrens Plating Works as it affects residents in Duncan Terrace, Islington.

Mr. Harold Walker

As a result of information given to me by the Chairman of the Health and Safety Commission I am satisfied that there has been full consultation between Her Majesty's Factory Inspectorate and the local authority and Thames Water Authority in this case. Her Majesty's Factory Inspectorate kept the other two authorities informed of the action it had taken, including the issue under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 of improvement notices to prevent further escape of chromic acid solution.
