HC Deb 05 December 1985 vol 88 cc304-5W
Mr. Chope

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he will publish the report of the counter-pollution measures taken following a spill of oil from the Bridgeness, after the vessel grounded off the Pembrokshire coast on 16 June.

Mr. Ridley

The report is being published today. It gives an account of the action taken by my Department's marine pollution control unit and explains the limitations of at-sea clean-up techniques in dealing with the type of oil split on this occasion. A copy of the report will be placed in the Library of the House.
