asked the Prime Minister what are the terms of reference of the Central Advisory Council for Science and Technology in its consideration of environmental pollution; and when it expects to make a report on the subject.
§ The Prime Minister
The Central Advisory Council was asked to consider all aspects of environmental pollution. As I told the House on 22nd July, the Government have already received the Council's advice. The action taken on their recommendation for further co-ordination of Departments is set out in paragraph 15 of the statement on Machinery of Government Changes circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT on 13th October.—[Vol. 787, c. 1481–2.]
