§ Mr. Patrick McNair-Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will now take action to implement the recommendations outlined in the annual report of the Advisory Committee on Oil Pollution of the Sea.
§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he intends taking on the report of the advisory committee on pollution of the seas for 1977 and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Shore
This annual report does not, generally speaking, make recommendations to Government. It does, however, highlight a number of areas of concern which the Advisory Committee on Oil Pollution of the Sea—a non-governmental organisation—has already brought or proposes to bring directly to the attention of the appropriate Government Departments.
