Control Of Detergent Pollution

EDM number 1265 in 1989-90, proposed by Harry Cohen on 10/07/1990.

That this House expresses its concern about the environmental problems of certain commonly-used household detergent compositions, particularly from the use of phosphates and phosphate substitutes, the inadequate biodegradability of other chemicals in detergents and the failure of most manufacturers to provide consumers with full information on the contents and environmental impact of household cleaners; notes that in addition to Rutland Water some 147 rivers, lakes and waterways in the United Kingdom are suffering algae blooms as a result of eutrophication caused by phosphates in detergents; welcomes the introduction of the Control of Detergent Pollution Bill which seeks to control the use of phosphates, increase the level of biodegradability and introduce comprehensive labelling; and urges consumers to buy environmentally-sound household detergents.

This motion has been ammended, see 330A1.

This motion has been signed by a total of 58 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
