asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps have been taken to implement the recommendations of the Working Party Report on Sewage Disposal, Taken for Granted, published in 1970.

A number of the main recommendations have been covered by the reorganisation of the water industry in 1974 and by the enactment of the Control of Pollution Act 1974. Proposals to proceed with a phased implementation of Part II of the 1974 Act were announced in February this year.
