asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why he has not carried out his undertakings to clear the scrapped car dump in Wilton Road, Humberston, near Grimsby, which is still causing concern to the local inhabitants; if he will see that this is done forthwith; and if he will make a statement.

An enforcement notice, effective from 15th May, 1965, requiring a reduction in the height of the car dump to 10 feet, was served by the Lindsey County Council. As this was not complied with, the firm was prosecuted and fined in August, 1965.I understand that the County Council are awaiting a report from their inspector, and my right hon. Friend has asked them to let him know quickly whether any further action is required to ensure compliance with the enforcement notice.
