HC Deb 08 August 1980 vol 990 c509W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of their familiarity with local needs, he will make it his policy to return all pollution control, with certain limited exceptions, to local authorities.

Mr. Fox

There are a variety of forms of pollution and the controls need to be exercised by the bodies best fitted to deal with them.
