asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that the proposed improvements in the sewage disposal works at Enfield will prevent the pollution of the River Lea by sewage in the Hackney district; and whether any improvements to the Tottenham sewage system are contemplated?

The Enfield improvements should make a marked difference, but I cannot say whether all pollution of the river will be prevented. No change in the Tottenham sewage arrangements are proposed: this sewage is passed into the London County Council sewers, and should therefore not pollute the river Lea.
