§ Mr. Alan Williams
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will take urgent action in respect of pollution of sea water off the Gower coast in view of the findings made in a survey by Swansea city council.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Swansea city council has not told me the results of its survey, but my own understanding is that pollution in Swansea Bay has not worsened since a Welsh Office working party reported on it in 1974. Remedial action is a matter for the Welsh Water Authority and its capital investment programme includes, among other things, expenditure of £1.2 million on the Mumbles sewage outfall and storm overflows at Swansea Docks.
