HC Deb 22 January 1988 vol 125 c878W
Sir John Biggs-Davison

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if, in the light of recent incidents at Carrickfergus and elsewhere, he is satisfied that there are adequate measures and supervision to control industrial pollution in the Province; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Needham

[holding answer 21 January 1988]: Yes, they are broadly in line with those which apply elsewhere in the United Kingdom. The resources required to supervise the control of industrial pollution are kept under regular review.
