HC Deb 30 October 1934 vol 293 cc30-1
61. Mr. McENTEE

asked the Minister of Health whether the advisory committee on London refuse have finished their work and reported; and, if so, what action the Ministry of Health propose to take in the matter?


The committee in question have made an interim report dealing with the disposal of house and trade refuse. I understand that the Metropolitan Boroughs Standing Joint Committee, of which the committee in question is a sub-committee, have asked for the observations of the Common Council of the City and of the Metropolitan Borough Councils on the report and, after these have been received, propose to communicate with me.


When is the report likely to be made available to Members of the House?


The hon. Member will understand that the ordinary processes of the consideration of a report are being followed in this case, and, until they are completed, I am afraid I cannot say.
