§ The Minister of Housing and Local Government (Mr. Anthony Greenwood)
Many sewerage authorities already consult local industry when they are planning new or extended disposal works to deal with voluminous or difficult trade waste, and I have urged in a recent circular that this should be the general practice.
§ Mr. Greenwood
I do not think that a joint scheme is the way to deal with the problem. Ownership of sewage disposal works must be under one body and not a joint undertaking of the kind the hon. Gentleman suggests. But I appreciate the interest he takes in this problem.
