45. Mr. Parry

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied with the operation of the licence for silt disposal from the River Mersey, with regard to the level of mercury in the river.

I am satisfied that silt from the River Mersey may be safely disposed of at sea under the terms set out in the licences of which I announced the renewal on 17 February.
