I am coming to the conclusion, Mr. Speaker.
My Bill would also be of benefit to the pollution control authorities themselves since they are sometimes exposed to needless criticism because of the restrictions on disclosure prevent them from explaining properly the steps which they have taken to control a pollution problem
However, my Bill's most vital contribution would be to enable people to find out for themselves the risks which they face from pollution, to discover whether everything necessary has been done to control it, and to press for greater public protection where it is necessary. I therefore hope that the House will approve my initiative and will give me leave to introduce the Bill.
Question put and agreed to.
