HC Deb 05 February 1987 vol 109 c755W
Mr. Boyes

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement about the alleged pollution from polychlorinated biphenyls caused by Re-chem International in Torfaen, near Pontypool.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

There is no evidence that the operations of the Re-chem International plant near Pontypool result in the presence of PCBs or other toxic substances in the local environment at levels significantly different from those in areas remote from chemical incineration or other industrial operations.
