§ 24. Mr. MANDER
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware of the serious pollution of the River Tame passing through Portobello and Willenhall, Staffordshire; and what steps are being taken to abate the nuisance?
Sir H. YOUNG
A complaint of pollution has been received, and I am inquiring into the matter. The complainant, as he has been informed, should communicate with the county council, the authority under the Rivers Pollution Prevention Act.
§ Mr. MANDER
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that efforts have been made for many months past to get some action taken, but without success; and will he see what he can do to stimulate action?
