§ Sir I. Albery
asked the Minister of Supply whether he is satisfied that adequate steps are being taken to reclaim for further use the material from used oil saturated cotton waste, rags and wipers?
§ Mr. Peat
Adequate arrangements are in operation for recovering and treating oily rags, cotton waste and wipers from Government factories, the Services, and the railway companies. A considerable number of processing firms throughout44W the country treat such material arising from commercial sources; but further measures may be necessary and I am investigating the matter.
