HC Deb 13 December 1979 vol 975 c773W
Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied that no phenolic or dioxin poison is leaking into the underground mine workings in Morton, Derbyshire.

Mr. Fox

It is for Derbyshire county council, as waste disposal authority, to ensure that no danger to public health or pollution of water arises from licensed disposal activities. I am informed, however, that there are no grounds for this fear.
