HC Deb 25 January 1955 vol 536 cc20-1
35. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Works if he will now make a statement on the results of the work of the Committee on Litter in the Royal Parks.

The Minister of Works (Mr. Nigel Birch)

The Report of the Committee on Litter in the Royal Parks is now available in the Vote Office. I am very grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Seven-oaks (Mr. J. Rodgers) and to all the members of the Committee for their very full study of the problem and for their recommendations. I am in general agreement with the recommendations.

Mr. Dodds

While wishing to be associated with the congratulations to this Committee, which we all know has done a good job of work, may I ask the Minister to bear in mind that there is deep feeling about the nuisance of litter, and that if he means business against the litter louts he will have the overwhelming support of the people generally?
