§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what report he has received from the Thames water authority about the pollution of the Thames tideway on 5 July by the discharge of a large volume of sewage from Thames water authority stormwater outfalls.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply he has received to his question of December 8 to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and also to the reply given to the hon. Member for Islington, North (Mr. Corbyn) on 17 July.
I understand that Thames water authority is taking steps to ensure that such incidents on the Thames do not recur.
