HC Deb 25 June 1951 vol 489 cc111-2W
111. Mr. Haire

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he now proposes to introduce schemes for the salvaging of tins, bottles and other food containers which are now in short supply.

Mr. Rhodes

I appreciate the importance of salvaging food containers, including tins and bottles, and both local authorities and private undertakings are doing excellent work in this field. The position is being watched and, if necessary, we shall not hesitate to take further measures, but I am not satisfied that these would be useful now.
