asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware of the methods employed by Chesterfield and Kingston-on-Thames for the treatment of sewage; whether it is being used for agricultural purposes; and whether he intends to take any action to induce other authorities to employ similar methods?

Mr. Hudson:

I am aware of the methods of treating sewage sludge employed at these two places, and understand that the authorities are disposing of the product for horticultural or agricultural purposes. With regard to the last part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the replies I gave the hon. Member for the Forest of Dean (Mr. Price) on 19th February and 6th March, of which I am sending him copies.
